Oct. 4, 3:30-4:30 Webinar: Colin Mathers on How to Help Students Grow by Supporting Risk-Taking

Register
29 seats available
When:

Oct 4, 2022
3:30 pm–4:30 pm

It is good practice for instructors to lead class by engaging their students in a conversation, but the tendency, if left unchecked, is for a few bright extroverts to dominate the conversation.  In this talk, I will explain strategies for reducing the number of spectators and increasing the number of active participants in the class-wide conversation, without forcing anyone to participate.  Strategies focus on students’ preparation, opportunities and, perhaps most importantly, disinhibition.

About the Presenter: Dr. Colin Mathers is a Lecturer in the Department of Philosophy in the College of Liberal Arts.

This session is a CTL Teachers on Teaching event and is open to all RIT faculty, including adjuncts, teaching staff, and teaching assistants.

Where:

In Person: Beta-SHED Classroom (Building 078, Rooms 2210-2240)

While lecture has its place, both individual and cooperative active learning techniques have proven to increase attentiveness and retention, while deepening learning in classrooms, even those with over 100 students. During the hands-on workshop, you will experience many possibilities of active student-centered learning from the student’s perspective. We will also investigate solutions to common challenges of leading a large classroom.

Taking Active Collaborative Learning to the Next Level in the Large Classroom

143 seats available
When:

Oct 17, 2022
2:00 pm–4:30 pm

Where:

In Person: Beta-SHED Classroom (Building 078, Rooms 2210-2240)

When active learning is transformed into a collaborative effort among students, not only is learning further deepened, but individual accountability is also amplified. Because active collaborative learning (ACL) techniques often require more prep time and restructuring of class time, we will investigate best practices and the suitability for large classrooms. Experience ACL from the student’s perspective to learn first-hand how to implement these techniques into your courses.
