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

You have the basics of teaching well in hand. Your students are successful. You feel comfortable with your content knowledge and teaching methods. So why would you change anything? This Magna Online Seminar invites you to peek behind the classroom doors and LMS screens of college and university instructors who win national teaching awards to find out what they do that is so different. We will take up three challenges, designed especially for already-excellent instructors:

  • Moving away from instructor-constructed interactions
  • Providing authentic experiences for learners
  • Shifting assessment to the learning process rather than what students produce at the end

All of these strategies share a grounding in the neuroscience of learning, greater learner engagement, and reduced instructor workload and will help you take your teaching to the next level.

LEARNING GOALS

Upon completion of this seminar, you’ll be able to:

  • Collaborate with learners to create learning processes together
  • Share authentic learning experiences that model real-world conditions for practitioners in the field represented by your courses
  • Assess learning through means beyond testing and project-writing

HERE'S WHAT WE'LL COVER

  • Threaded-pathway teaching practices
  • Collaborative learning design
  • Constructivist learning theory
  • Authentic learning design
  • Learning neuroscience
