CITL Faculty Workshop Series: Best Practices for Teaching
Please join us in this faculty workshop series as we meet new colleagues to learn, discuss, and share best practices used by the best college teachers. These strategies are based on pedagogy and the research literature. Our goal is to form a faculty learning community where you will leave with new ideas and approaches to immediately implement in your courses. Since each session builds on each other, we hope that you will be able to attend all three meetings.Session 2: Keeping Your Students Active and EngagedWednesday, June 18, 201411:00 – 1:00 (Lunch Provided)Room 428, Armory Building
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, our attention span is relatively short.
We’ll begin creating activities where student are involved in doing, seeing, writing, feeling, and talking. Also, we’ll learn about Classroom Assessment Techniques (CATS), which actively engage students while providing valuable feedback about their learning.Please mark these sessions on your calendarAll Wednesdays, 11:00 – 1:00 (Lunch at 11:00)Room 428, Armory Building
