Open to: All instructors and academic staff
The learning in our courses requires more than simple remembering and understanding. Often, what we are trying to cultivate in our students are higher-order thinking skills like analysis, synthesis, and application, but how do we do this when we still feel time-constrained to cover a certain amount of content in a course?
Come join a discussion about re-envisioning class time without re-inventing the wheel. Hear from distinguished faculty in different disciplines who have moved from a purely content delivery approach to one that is more dynamic and interactive, as we explore ways to balance and expand lecture with other forms of pedagogy that promote student meaning making, discussion, and interpretation in order to generate the desired level of thinking and engagement with course concepts.

This is a forum for discussion, so come with questions and your own ideas. Snacks and refreshments will be provided, and participants are welcome to bring their lunch.
Registration is not required, but we appreciate RSVPs so we know how many people to expect.
