Coming to NISOD to talk about interactive activities in college classroom.

Memorial Day, Monday May 26th, at 10:15. at the Convention Center, (in Room 13B probably), I will be hosting a discussion on using interactive activities in the college classroom to encourage student engagement.
“Ways to Engage Students: Pros, Cons, and Science.”
We are moving away from the typical “read a book/go to lecture/write a paper/take a test.” Is this good? Is it bad? Since we must, how might we do it better? I have promised to come with at lest 14 ideas for teachers to use immediately and to host a discussion that airs concerns. Handout with bibliography will be available. Questions are posted here, since this is where I have the capability to host a discussion. Look for Handout on http://www.austincc.edu/ssarles.

QUESTIONS

What interactive activities have been very useful in your community college level classes?
What resources do you recommend?

What concerns do you have about using interactive activities in your classroom?

In what ways would activities borrowed from corporate training be effective or ineffective in the college classroom?

In what ways could we avoid regurgitating the text by use of activities? In what ways could we drive students to read and mentally process their reading through activities?

In what ways might we ensure a raising of academic ability or work place abilities through activities?

What People are Saying

How could this session be improved? No, this was perfect actually. Loved that it allowed for discussion.
“Knowledge of presenter is outstanding; makes it easy to sit through training.”
“Very helpful to use in my classroom.”
“I enjoyed Sharon’s enthusiasm, eagerness to connect with her audience and her down to earth personality that really brought forth new tactics in teaching, but also interesting insights to people skills in all! I will implement much of her lesson into my classroom as well as my home and personal life.”

“I love love loved the tidbits of the history of teaching you included…. I would love to dig deeper into how … education has changed and [talk about how to] “get back to basics.”

What did you like best about this seminar? She had an emphasis on Christ centered education. (This was in a church affiliated preschool.)

What did you like best?

  • Where to find books [relating to] morals.
  • Plenty of time for discussion was given.
  • Explanation of the class which I could understand well.
  • Learning how to incorporate values into our planning.

What I like to hear most, and often do: “We want to have you back. When can you come? “
