Four students work on a robotics project

You’re invited to the Fulton Schools’ first interactive teaching workshop on Friday, October 20, 2017!

Learn research-based principles of teaching and learning that can be used in everyday classroom practice; develop knowledge and skills on evidence based teaching and learning from research; and see how you can work as a community of practice (CoP) to share knowledge, develop instructional strategies, implement and evaluate approaches and support implementation of innovative classroom practices. 

Teaching Workshop for New Faculty
Friday, October 20, 2017
8:30 a.m.–1 p.m.
Brickyard Artisan Court (BYAC) 210, Tempe campus [map]
Register to attend

You can also register for lunch at the workshop. 

Topics for discussion:

  • Introduction to student-centered instructional best practices
  • Learning objectives and Bloom’s Taxonomy
  • Active learning and student engagement
  • Cooperative and collaborative learning
  • Tech tools and applications
  • Student motivation and grading
  • A case study of student-centered instruction in practice

The workshop was created based on feedback from the New Faculty Advisory Council and modeled after an ASU large-scale National Science Foundation-funded faculty development project, Just in Time Teaching with Two-Way Formative Feedback from Disciplinary Engineering Faculty (JTFD). The JTFD project is aimed at shifting instruction from instructor-centered teaching by lecture to more student-centered, conceptual change learning through engagement pedagogies and strategies, which are more effective and aligned with the principles and goals of the KERN project.
