Junior Faculty Seminar Series: Best Practices to Improve Student Learning

Come join a dynamic learning community by participating in this specially designed seminar series for junior faculty, though all faculty are welcomed to participate. We'll share strategies and best practices to enhance student learning. There will be great conversations and handouts. Since each session builds on each other, we hope you will be able to attend all the meetings.  

Session 7: 

Enabling Students to Think Critically and Problem-Solve

Wednesday, Apr. 12, 2017
11:30 – 1:00
Room 428, Armory Building 

As the world becomes more global and information grows exponentially, our students are facing increasingly more complex problems whose solutions cannot be readily found in textbooks. Our responsibility is then to enable our students to approach issues through an inquiry-based instructional model in tackling authentic real-world problems. This model requires us to reconsider the content; e.g., what and how much, what skills our students will need, and how we will evaluate our students. In this session, we will begin our conversation and practice this teaching (and learning) model.
