Bring Your Best Idea: Transparent Teaching Methods √ §
How do you communicate your pedagogical approaches?
Wednesday, February 19, 2020 · Noon - 1:30 PM
When and how do you communicate with students about your pedagogical approaches? Have you been successful at anticipating and proactively addressing potential “pushback” from students about your teaching methods and choices for activities or assignment types? Such transparent teaching methods have been shown to support inclusion by helping students understand how and why they are learning course content in particular ways.
For Bring Your Best Idea sessions, we (locally) crowdsource answers to questions such as these. Please bring your best ideas for transparent teaching to this lively, collaborative, and fast-paced sharing session. At the beginning of the session, participants will have the opportunity to reflect on the theme and write a brief description of a problem or a strategy related to the theme. Anyone who has an idea to share with the whole group will have two minutes to describe it. No slides please, though a one-page handout to pass around is welcome. After 20-30 minutes of sharing ideas, we’ll shift to Q&A and discussion. Whether or not you bring an idea to share, you’ll leave this session with new food for thought and several new ideas you might try in your own course.
Lunch will be provided to all registered participants, please click “Going” below to reserve your seat for this session.
