Pedagogy- If not you, who? : Incorporating learning strategies to support student independence.
|Dates:||10 October 2018|
|Times:||12:00 - 13:00|
|What is it:||Workshop|
|Organiser:||Faculty of Biology, Medicine and Health|
A number of large studies have recently been published which focus on effective learning strategies and different ways to integrate them into teaching. This session will explore a few research-supported learning strategies that have been shown to improve student learning and engagement. It will take participants through each strategy and critically explore how they might be integrated into their own practice. Finally, we will explore the potential for using the strategies to free up time within lectures and seminars and allow students and staff to delve deeper into materials, conversations and topics. This will be an interactive session and participants can expect to walk away with information and materials they can use immediately.
Delegates will leave the Pedagogy with a good understanding of:
Being able to recognise a few current research-supported learning strategies and where they may be used most effectively.
How to consider a plan for exploring integration into your teaching.
Recognising how such learning strategies can aid student independence and ensure students take equal responsibility for their learning.
