Faculty Seminar Series on Teaching & Learning

Theme: Great Teachers …. Know what and how well their student have learned

(Flyer)

 

We are pleased to be meeting in person again! Come join a dynamic learning community by participating in this specially designed workshop series for all faculty (across all disciplines and rank). We’ll share strategies and best practices from research-based pedagogy. Great conversations and handouts provided.

 

Session 4: Active Learning: Ways to Engage Students and Assess Their Learning

 

  • Want your students to be more engaged?
  • Want to know about their learning?
  • Increase satisfaction?
  • And …. Not add any more grading?

 

Learning is not a spectator sport (Chickering & Gamson). Students must be cognitively, physically, and affectively engaged for deeper learning and retention to occur. Yet, we have to admit, there are many distractions and the attention span of our students can be relatively short. How do we manage the amount of content that we should teach while providing opportunities for our students to be engaged in active learning, especially as we teach and learn remotely?

 

We’ll explore and practice several active learning strategies, beginning with those that can be easily implemented and are of low risk for both online and in-person classes.  Also, we’ll learn about Classroom Assessment Techniques (CATS), active learning strategies that are ungraded and provide important information about how well our students are learning.
