When asked, we can tell you when a specific strategy or assignment worked well or didn’t and perhaps, to a lesser degree, when a particular concept was not well understood by our students.  But if asked to explain why, how many of us can really explain the reasons for those successful and not as successful moments?

Cross and Steadman state that all of us can better understand the teaching and learning in our courses through classroom research. In this instance, having a problem is a good thing. Short cases and common scenarios will be used.  Join us in this interactive workshop as we explore ways to become more effective teachers and to help our students be better learners.
