This is a faculty workshop provided by James Lang, professor of English and director of the Center for Teaching Excellence at Assumption College. Ongoing calls to revolutionize and revitalize higher education need balancing with the everyday work that many faculty do in educating their students in traditional classroom spaces or online environments. A small number of key principles from the learning sciences seem to have the power to make a substantial impact on student learning in almost any type of course, from traditional lectures to flipped classrooms. This workshop will introduce some of those principles, drawing from recent publications in the learning sciences, and focus on how to use a variety of elements of course design and classroom practice—from the syllabus to the closing moments of class—to boost learning in powerful new ways. Advance registration is required.
