Theories and Issues in Postsecondary Teaching and Learning for Graduate Students

THIS WORKSHOP IS NOW FULL - PLEASE CHECK OUT OUR OTHER GRADUATE STUDENT WORKSHOPS and STAY TUNED FOR SPRING/SUMMER SCHEDULING

By way of registering in this workshop, you are committing to attend all 4 sessions of this series.This cohort-based series will focus on some of the big issues and questions in postsecondary teaching and learning.  Together we will explore what researchers currently know about how learning actually happens, discuss how to plan lessons that enhance learning, then dive into some practical applications. Each participant will have the opportunity to highlight a current issue in postsecondary education—possibilities include but are not limited to equity and inclusion, indigenization, and student accommodation—and design a learning activity for the group. We will also focus on how to give and receive high quality feedback that supports both teaching and learning.

At the end of this series of workshops participants will be able to:

  • Engage in collaborative, critically reflective conversations with colleagues to explore current issues, theories and research in postsecondary education

  • Practice peer teaching, and collecting and responding to feedback from colleagues

All workshops will take place in Learning Studio D. The dates and topics of the workshops are as follows:

1. How does learning work? The basics of teaching and learning
 January 30, 12:00pm-2:00pm in Learning Studio D
