Decode a Troublesome Concept or Skill for Your Learners

Wednesday, February 8 @ 11:00 am - Wednesday, February 15 @ 1:00 pm

*Registration full*

Date and time: This two-session online workshop meets on Wednesday, February 8 and February 15, 11AM-1PM CT

This two-part workshop is for anyone who needs to explain a concept or skill to students in any instructional role: an instructor, a guest lecturer, as a teaching assistant or tutor holding office hours. The main deliverable of the workshop is to develop an analogy for a particular concept/skill that will make your learners say “Aha! I truly understand what you mean!” By the end of this workshop, participants will:

  • Identify specific content or skills learners in your field/discipline typically struggle with.
  • Develop an instructional intervention (in the form of an analogy) to communicate the mental actions learners must take in order to successfully navigate their struggle.
