As part of the Development Group Series, Ms. Briggs will be presenting Part 2 in the series "Models of Effective Teaching." This session will be focus on designing classroom materials to explicitly meet our established learning goals for our students. Prior attendance at Part 1 is not required.
Learning Goals of this session:
Participants will integrate knowledge of evidence-based education practices by converting fundamental concepts within their own fields into a suite of classroom activities that target student misconceptions, elicit their prior knowledge, and focus them on learning what’s most important.
We will be working together to examine and re-asses our own classroom materials, so please bring some of your own assessments (such as quizzes, exams, writing assignments, etc.) that you wish to examine.
This event is free and open Beloit College faculty only.
