STS: Order Matters: Becoming Metacognitive about Teaching Choices and Aligning Teaching with How the Brain Learns

This event is part of series:

February 16, 2021 - 11:00am to 1:00pm
Kimberly Tanner & Jeff Schinske

What teaching choices are we making as instructors, and why? How do we as instructors decide how to spend in-class time with students? To what extent do our teaching plans align with what is known about how the brain learns? What tools are available to become more analytical about our teaching choices and strategize for change? In this interactive workshop, participants will explore their current approaches to planning and reflecting on their teaching, as well as explore the 5E learning cycle model as an analytical tool for understanding teaching choices. Individual participants will have the opportunity to self-assess and analyze current class sessions and identify changes that could be immediately implemented.

Co-sponsored by the Office of the Vice Provost for Graduate Education (VPGE) and the Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL).
