- Identify areas for improvement in assessments: Instructors will evaluate their current method of instruction and assessments. Typically, materials in lecture is presented lower on the Bloom's Taxonomy pyramid, whereas on exams students are expected to perform higher level Blooms tasks such as applying and analyzing. Instructors will identify gaps between their expectations and student learning/testing.
- Support student success in your teaching: Identify resources to help students understand how they learn in order for them to be successful. Review examples to integrate student-centered teaching and learning into the classroom
Workshop participants will learn about strategies they can incorporate into any course--including remote instruction-- to improve student metacognition, study skills, and motivation. Reading "Teach Students How To Learn" by Saundra McGuire will give a great starting point on the importance of metacognition in the classroom. We will build on this foundational concept with additional examples presented in this workshop. This workshop will give participants time to reflect on their own teaching practices and enable them to make changes to their current content delivery to ensure student success. Attendees will participate in both small and large group discussions and activities, collaborate with colleagues from SCC Math and Science Departments, and develop an action plan for improving student success in their classroom.
