"Teaching More by Talking Less: Using Active Learning Spaces to Increase Student Learning"
Tuesday, February 14, from 12-1 in the River Valley Room
Dr. Robin Wright is a nationally recognized teacher and researcher, and has published numerous papers in national and international research journals on both her scientific and pedagogical research. Over the years she has "transformed her teaching from the traditional teacher-centered model of lecture-and-test to a cooperative learning approach that builds life-long skills." She has recently overseen the development and implementation of a SCALE-UP classroom at the U of M, where she uses inquiry/group-based teaching to instruct large (150 students) introductory classes.
In this seminar Dr. Wright will present data on and model active learning approaches that enhance student learning. She will also conduct a workshop the afternoon of February 14 from 2-4 on curriculum development for SCALE-UP spaces. The noon seminar is open but registration is required for the workshop. To register, contact Anne Kelsch (firstname.lastname@example.org or 7-4233).
