Small changes prompt big results in teaching. Drawing from ideas in James M. Lang's Small Teaching: Everyday Lessons from the Science of Learning, we will identify and share ways to turn ‘so-so’ lessons into more effective teaching activities.

Have you found yourself telling your students they should study two hours for every one hour of class time… that they should know their learning style… that they should listen to classical music while they complete their math homework… and then wondered if your words of advice are actually true? Join us for this fun, informative workshop. We will even ensure that we use more than 10% of our brains to decide whether the evidence supports or rejects these and other learning myths!

In this workshop, participants will reflect on their beliefs about teaching and learning, identify theorists that align with their views, and articulate concrete ways their philosophy is enacted in online or traditional classroom settings. This workshop is designed for all graduate students interested in teaching or preparing their materials for a job search.

Participants in this workshop will identify ways to integrate informal, formative writing activities in STEM classes to improve and measure student learning (writing-to-learn). In addition, participants will develop specific strategies to efficiently design and assess formal writing assignments (learning-to-write).

This book is the foundation for this year's eponymous workshop series focusing on teaching techniques. Moving from a research-based perspective, Dr. Brookfield unpacks skillful teaching in all its formats (lectures, discussions, group work etc). This Book Chat is structured in two parts, one per semester. Part 2 covers chapter 2 (the 4 assumptions of skillful teaching) and chapters 11 to 20. Participants can sign up for either one or both.

Problem-based learning, first introduced in medical schools, is a pedagogical approach which strives to make the classroom student-centered and the learning experience relevant to real life situations. Dr. Wynn will demonstrate how he applies this pedagogy in his history courses. We will examine the evidence for the effectiveness of this technique as well as ways to incorporate it in various disciplines.
