Summer Series 2012: High Impact Learning: Meaningful Strategies for Meaningful Learning
Wednesday, May 23, 2012
8:30 to 2:30 pm
Phillips Autograph Library and
Lower Level Conference Room
Come learn from experts and colleagues about “high impact learning.” In the morning session, Diana Laufenberg (2007 Arizona Technology Teacher of the Year and TED speaker) will be speaking on “Project-Based Learning.” The second half of her keynote address will be interactive and applied. Workshop participants are being asked to bring their syllabi to get practical ideas for incorporating project-based learning in their courses.
During a lunch and pedagogy fair, learn about the engaging activities Pedagogy for Engagement Committee grants have funded recently.
In the afternoon session, Mark Good (co-sponsored with the Office of Social Equity) will be speaking on increasing the participation of marginalized voices in the classroom and offering concrete tips for fostering greater empathy toward others.
We are planning for morning refreshments and lunch. For planning purposes, please RSVP to Andrea Grinwis (firstname.lastname@example.org) by Wednesday, May 9.
In your RSVP, also remember to include a brief description of your course and questions you have about project-based learning. These will be forwarded to our keynote speaker in advance. See the attached flyer for more details on the 2012 Summer Series event.
