Using Education Resources and Literature to Enhance Your Teaching
Thursday, July 22 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am
Location: Online (registrants will be sent a Zoom link)
There is no need reinvent the wheel: many other educators have considered and addressed challenges in student learning and their work can inform your teaching. This workshop will cover where to search, what search terms to use, and what types of questions to ask. We’ll consider both peer reviewed, scholarly literature and web resources that summarize best practices for busy instructors.
Participants will need to have available a laptop or tablet*, as well as a learning challenge or question they are interested in, such as the best practices for an activity they are considering, finding an assessment for a course unit they’re teaching, or why a particular concept seems so challenging.
Using the educational research literature is part of the Teaching-As-Research process, and this workshop is highly recommended for those considering a Delta Internship.
* For on-site (in-person) offerings, we are happy to provide loaned laptop or tablets if notified before the workshop. Please let us know by contact firstname.lastname@example.org
