Teaching Academic Reading Strategies with Marie Francois
Faculty are often dismayed at the undeveloped reading skills some of our students bring to the university. Reading is a metacognitive skill. Research shows that teaching reading strategies result in students’ deep learning of texts and disciplinary content. How can we model and embed reading strategies into our teaching to help students synthesize prior knowledge and information from academic texts to create new knowledge?
Negotiating Power in the Classroom with Julia Balén
What types of power are operating in your classroom and how do they affect teaching and learning? This workshop will explore how to assess power dynamics as they affect teaching and learning and develop strategies to negotiate them more effectively.Register Now for May Events
