Special Session-Enhancing Class Interactivity: Lessons on Small Teaching from the Learning Sciences

Conference Paper


Abstract


  • This 2×80-minute special session aims to assist university teachers to enhance interactivity in their classrooms by incorporating small changes to make big differences for teaching the next generation of learners. It draws on the learning sciences, learning theory and active learning pedagogy to provide simple, practical activities easily transferrable to any teaching context. In this session, participants will experience first-hand strategies aimed to energize and boost student understanding. University teachers will walk away from this session equipped with a greater knowledge of how students learn, the benefits of active learning and small strategies that can be immediately applied to enhance class interactivity and deepen student learning.
