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.

Throughout your life you will, almost certainly, give presentations. We’ve all sat through presentations that were boring, confusing, and drab. How do you communicate your message most succinctly? What visuals will captivate and inform our students the best? Is it only about the PowerPoint or are there other techniques that leave a lasting impression on the audience? In this session we distill the magic that just might take your next presentation from bland to grand. http:/go.illinois.edu/presentationNote: This workshop counts towards, the Graduate Teacher Certificate, the Certificate in Foundations of Teaching, or the Certificate in Technology-Enhanced Teaching.
