Effective Lesson Plans, CTE1202 (Winter 2020)Export this event to calendar

Wednesday, February 12, 2020 — 9:30 AM to 11:30 AM EST

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” (bridge-in, outcomes, pre-assessment, participatory learning, post-assessment, and summary), 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.
