Workshop: Small Teaching Changes that Build Analysis and Reflection

Tuesday, February 06 2018

@ 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM

This workshop introduces participants to some threshold concepts in writing studies (such as "all writers have more to learn" or "failure can be an important part of writing development"). Participants will consider ways these threshold concepts can help shape their own disciplinary writing assignments.

The right small, powerful changes to your teaching can have a big impact on student learning. Our Small Changes, Big Impact series highlights research-based strategies you could implement tomorrow.

In this workshop we explore how small class activities can encourage students to purposefully dig deeper into core content and become more reflective learners.
