How can you help your students to be actively engaged in their own learning? Foster applied critical thinking in the classroom. Bring a lesson or module you wish to revise and join Dina Newman and Jen Schneider for a three-hour workshop, as we show you how to design activities that ask students to apply specific critical thinking skills. Then, work with instructional designers at your convenience during the summer and the 2017-18 academic year to identify formal and informal assessment opportunities, such as surveys, informal classroom observation, and small group instructional feedback, that will give you data you can use to refine your approach.

Participants will receive a copy of Understanding by Design by Grant Wiggins and Jay McTighe.

Light Refreshments will be provided.
