Learning-Centered Teaching Workshop
This is a past event.
Friday, February 4 at 10:00am to 11:30amVirtual Event
Learning-centered teaching strategies focus on instructors as facilitators of learning, rather than providers of knowledge. Research shows that when learning-centered approaches to teaching and curriculum are used, "they promote a different, deeper, and better kind of learning” (Weimer, 2013). During this workshop participants will:
- Understand key research findings related to learning processes and their implications for classroom instruction
- Define active learning, collaborative learning, and inquiry-based learning, and be able to describe classroom learning activities for each pedagogical approach
- Apply to understand of learning processes and forms of learning-centered teaching to course design
