Do less to boost students’ performance
Do you find yourself talking too much in class whilst your students are poorly engaged? Or do some of your students perform poorly even though they seem to understand the concepts without asking questions in class? If yes, this workshop is for you. Instruction in physics classes is often represented as the instructor spending a lot of time teaching a large amount of information, with students passively listening and taking notes. This can often lead to decreased student engagement. But often the best forms of instruction occur when students are discussing concepts with peers, with the teacher facilitating and guiding the discussions. In a sense the teacher does less but the learning is better. In the session, Paul and Catherine, using a variety of proven instructional techniques, share a number of strategies that allows for greater student engagement and performance.They will model what a “less is more” lesson looks like.
