This is a group viewing of the Magna Webinar described as follows:

Think back to the last time you graded student work. How long did it take? Think about the work you put into preparing and presenting information that is new to your students. A lot of time, there, too? What if we told you that your students can actually learn more and learn better if you were to teach less and grade less? There has to be a catch, right? Well, no. This Magna Online Seminar presents a framework of expert-level teaching practices, all backed by the science of how our brains learn. Adopting three elements of a constructivist teaching approach can help to make learners more active, curious, and engaged, all while reducing your workload as an instructor.
