Understanding the Learner

Course code: CTE068

DescriptionAs instructors, we often think about what constitutes effective teaching.  But let's put ourselves in our students' shoes for a moment.  What constitutes effective learning?  How does learning occur and what individual differences affect the teaching and learning process?  These are just a few of the questions that will be explored in this CTE event on Understanding the Learner.  In this half-day workshop, key theories of learning and a variety of learning styles will be presented and discussed.  Participants will identify their own unique learning styles and explore how these characteristics affect their approaches to teaching.  The goal of this workshop is to prepare instructors for designing and implementing instructional activities that will maximize student learning.  

This workshop is a required workshop for GS 901.  One response paper is required and must be accepted for credit towards CUT.
