With learner-centered teaching, students take more responsibility for their learning. It’s an approach that focuses a teacher’s attention on what students are doing and deals with learning processes explicitly. However, the challenge for many faculty in attempting this approach is the simple fact that many students come to class so poorly prepared to learn. As a result, faculty have a difficult time imagining students being any more responsible for their learning than they already are. In this “flipped webinar”, participants will watch a 20-minute presentation from Maryellen Weimer, editor of The Teaching Professor and author of Learner-Centered Teaching: Five Key Changes to Practice. We will then meet via Zoom to discuss and extend the ideas presented in the video.
Registration is required. This event is part of a series Creating a Climate for Learning.
* Graduate students are welcome to attend all CTL events, space permitting. If an event fills up, GTAs will be moved to the waitlist in the order in which they registered.
