Dynamic Lecturing and the Science of Learning Workshop

Note: If registrations are full, please register anyway. We expect to be able to accommodate many from the waitlist for this event.

Join us for this workshop focused on designing classes using dynamic lecturing and engaging and inclusive teaching strategies with Dr. Todd Zakrajsek. By the end of this session, you will be able to select and apply new ideas and techniques to help your students learn based on the science of learning, particularly cognitive load and information processing theory. You will be able to implement inclusive teaching techniques for your diverse students, specifically for students who tend toward introversion, whose first language is not English, and those with high social anxiety. You will be able to ensure that your assessment methods are inclusive, and align with your course learning goals.
