Expanding Your Pedagogical Toolkit
Wednesday, September 26, 4:00pm-6:00pm
Graduate Center, Room 6496
Looking for new and creative instructional practices to enliven your classroom? Interested in learning new ways to structure your students’ engagement with course materials?
Energetic class discussions and meaningful activities help connect emerging thinking to the reading students are doing. A supportive classroom community can reduce anxiety about learning, and create space for reflection and intellectual engagement. These are essential components for courses that we wish to resonate well-past the final exam. The goal of this workshop is to help build and expand your pedagogical toolkit with a range of activities that assist in facilitating these kinds of experiences in our classrooms.
We will look at a collection of classroom activities with a variety of pedagogical goals, and discuss their use and potential across disciplines. Participants will leave with specific classroom activities, along with ideas about how to incorporate them into their teaching.
