Speaker Workshop

Small Teaching in Action: Explanation and Practice

Following up on the keynote presentation, this workshop will dig deeper into two principles of learning: explanation and practice. These two principles can especially guide us as we are helping students cultivate new skills of any kind. Participants will be introduced briefly to the research and then be invited to work with colleagues to devise implementation strategies for their fall semester courses
