Junior Faculty Seminar Series on Teaching & Learning

Come join this learning community by participating in this specially designed seminar series for junior faculty, though all are welcomed to participate. We'll share strategies and best practices for effective and efficient teaching. There will be great conversations, handouts, and lunch! Since each session builds on each other, we hope you will be able to attend all the meetings.  

 

Session 5: Make Teaching Stick - Six Ways to Make Your Lessons More Memorable

.

We spend hours making decisions on critical concepts and skills for our students to master; we think about the best ways to present those concepts; we plan activities to engage our students.  Yet… some of our students just don’t get it. Maybe what our class lacked was “stickiness.” In this interactive session, we will discuss the six principles that Chip and Dan Heath propose in their book Made to Stick: Why Some Ideas Survive and Others Die” and ways to apply them to our teaching.

 

This workshop counts towards the Graduate Teacher Certificate, the Teacher Scholar Certificate or the Certificate in Foundations of Teaching.
