What Comes First? How We Can (Re)order What We Teach to Align with How People Learn (7/7)

July 7, 2021, 10:00am to 11:30am
Intended audience: 
Faculty, Graduate Student Instructors, Instructors

As instructors, we’re often encouraged to incorporate different teaching strategies to increase student engagement and improve learning; for example, playing a video clip, discussing in small groups, or using poll questions. How do we decide what to include and when? Does the order matter? In this interactive workshop, we will consider how people learn and use the 5E learning cycle model as a tool to understand and align teaching choices. Participants will have the opportunity to collaboratively and individually examine current class segments and identify potential changes.


Registration is unavailable. Registration closed on July 6, 2021 - 5:00pm.
