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.
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.
