In this interactive workshop, participants will use a case study to explore the three primary ways of understanding the role of the teacher in higher education and consider what constitutes good teaching. We’ll take a look at what the shift from “providing instruction” to “promoting learning” involves—and why it is causing many in higher education to re-think who they are as teachers and what they do in the classroom. Finally, we’ll consider strategies that participants can adapt in order to have a greater impact on what students learn in their classes.
