Fall Workshop on the Affective Domain

published Jun 22, 2009 5:03pm
A one day workshop will be held this fall, Changing Student Motivations and Attitudes in the Geosciences on Saturday, September 19, 2009 at Mesa Community College, Mesa, AZ. The application/registration deadline has been extended to August 28, 2009. This workshop is open to the first 30 geoscience faculty (community college and university, full and part time) who register. The workshop will provide opportunities to understand the role of the affective domain in learning and to discuss the application of this understanding to specific examples in the introductory geosciences. We will showcase teaching that takes into account the affective domain including examples of strategies for addressing student attitudes in both small and large lecture settings, and increasing motivation for learning.

This workshop is part of the Cutting Edge Follow-On Workshop Program
