Using the modified lecture approach to increase in-class interaction and engagement and provide an enhanced learning experience.
The Hands-On Theory theme will continue as a series of brief, open “workstops” hosted by educator advocates of learner-centered approaches to lesson design.
Too short to be workshops, “workstops” will be open, interest-driven sessions focused on your applications of learning research and techniques. Please come prepared with a problematic concept or skill lesson from your experience. Educator-hosts will briefly outline their approach, then begin to work with each group on adapting problematic lessons through this lens.
An assembly of dedicated educators will always have some new ideas to share. Rooms will be open for self- organizing sessions around shared topics of interest.
(“Moodle: Need to Know Now” will convene in a computer room on campus to work through tips and tricks of ACC and BU’s learning management system.)
