Team-based/collaborative learning. In the real world you work with other people (who are often from different fields), so why is school such an individual experience? Students need to learn how to get things done as a team, so bring your ideas and examples for 1) designing group-based classes and projects, 2) managing everything along the way, and 3) assessing and grading.
THIS SESSION WILL BE POSTPONED DUE TO THE COLLEGE COLLOQUIUM EVENT.
How do I teach majors and non-majors at the same time? Whether you teach a 101 Gen Ed course or a higher-level class that often attracts non-majors, you’ve got students with different reasons and goals for being there. Let’s have a conversation and see what solutions we could try.
Wednesday, Nov 2, noon. Frock Conference Room (Library).
