Most instructors teach the way they were taught, which may or may not be a good thing. This interactive workshop will provide participants with a toolbox of activities suitable for any classroom. We will introduce the concept of active learning and teacher-centred versus student-centred classrooms. In this workshop we will also discuss some of the reasons for using different teaching methods and help you decide which ones are right for your classroom.
Planning tutorials, labs, and guest lectures requires careful attention to goals, content, activities, and timing. In this workshop, you'll learn to streamline your lesson preparations and strengthen your teaching. Using a popular model of lesson planning called “BOPPPS,” you’ll learn to design lessons that align learning activities and assessments with learning outcomes. Together, we’ll analyse examples of successful lesson plans, and you'll begin to develop a lesson plan that is compatible with your teaching context and instructional style.
Literature reviews are a keystone of academic writing. This workshop explores using the Matrix Method to manage your literature review. Bring a laptop or mobile device so that you can begin applying this method to your own work.
