SHEDing Light on the Value of In-Person Instruction

December 12, 2023 Andrew Dimock

While technology has expanded the breadth, depth, and delivery mechanisms involved in learning over time, remote learning is effective and as ancient as the written word. Yet, in person instruction persists – the question is why? This talk will begin by framing our thinking around how to generate value through the intersection of physical space and in person instruction before proceeding to brief overview of the teaching experience in the new Student Hall for Exploration and Development (SHED) along with some lessons learned and practical advice. It will conclude with an audience discussion around best practices and approaches to delivering value to the in-class experience.
