Harnessing Learning Theories to Teach with Intention
All instructional choices are rooted in some internalized assumptions about how learning works. Whether we assign papers, midterms, or projects, we are responding to these assumptions and to our disciplinary conventions. Without careful reflection, we can experience misalignments between our assumptions about good teaching and our instructional choices.
In this workshop, participants will develop an understanding of five major learning theories and critically examine the teaching techniques that arise from each of them. By the end of the workshop, participants will be able to transfer this knowledge into making more intentional instructional choices and creating effective learning experiences for their students.
