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

February 26, 2020, 10:00am to 12:00pm
Intended audience: 
Faculty, 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, using clicker questions. How do we decide what to include and when? Does the order matter? In this interactive workshop, we will explore how people learn and use the 5E learning cycle model as an analytical tool to understand and align teaching choices. Participants will have the opportunity to self-assess and analyze current class sessions and identify changes that can be immediately implemented.


Registration is unavailable. Registration closed on February 25, 2020 - 12:00pm.

Series description

Interested in trying new teaching strategies, but not sure where to start? Looking to refresh your pedagogy without redesigning your entire course? Wondering what education research tells us about effective teaching practices? In this pilot series, we’ll discuss evidence-based teaching tools and techniques that improve student learning and can be implemented in class tomorrow!

NOTE: Each session is limited to 20 participants. Priority will be given to current instructors.
