Integrating How We Teach with the Science of How We Learn
Time & Location
About the Event
With almost a full semester of experience teaching remotely, we have lessons to learn from the lessons we taught. Beginning with our strengths and challenges as a teacher, this edge-of-your seat, eye-opening webinar will probe the strategies we used to adapt to the sudden move online and look forward to building strategies for the future. We will discuss the importance of integrating your strengths of practice with relevant findings from the science of learning and core principles of Universal Design, as we select and leverage technology to elevate our teaching in what are, to many of us, less than optimal circumstances as we prepare for the newish normal this Fall.
- I can identify my strengths of practice as a teacher.
- I can utilize my strengths and weakness when designing a distance-delivered course.
- I can describe key findings from the science of learning.
- I can recognize where they are revealed in my practice.
- I can describe the core principles of Universal Design for Learning.
- I can design my practice around my strengths of practice, the science of learning, and the principles of Universal Design for Learning.
