Full course description
Wondering how to keep students engaged in learning?
Puzzled about how to connect in-class activities to outcomes?
Curious about why certain students retreat from class discussions even when they know the material?
Join us as we explore and apply strategies for cultivating an engaged classroom that can support a range of learners. We will reimagine class discussion as community building and consider strategies for actively learning lecture content. By the end of the workshop, participants should be able to:
- Apply different approaches to class discussion by using techniques that give all students a chance to be heard and participate from their strengths
- Implement cooperative learning activities to replace or supplement lecture to help students gain deeper understanding of course content
