Rethinking the approach to teaching and classroom management is the goal of this seminar, which is designed to help participants excel in teaching and teaching-related activities. Participants will be trained in the art and science of effective teaching, student engagement, and classroom management by using student-centred, active-learning approaches used by master teachers. Attendees will be taught specific methods used by award-winning teachers to create a compelling learning experience, including methods such as encoding, interleaving, and chunking. Further, the effective use and management of student and teacher assessment will be addressed.
In addition, participants will learn how to manage a case class, from case preparation to discussion management, handling challenging students, and student evaluation. Attendees will also gain hands-on experience in the art and craft of writing cases and teaching notes. Further, participants will learn how to use innovative technologies to engage and track students before the start and during class—be it traditional, blended, or “flipped” classes.
Faculty wanting to create a personalized teaching style, faculty new to the classroom, executives transitioning from the corporate world to the classroom, PhD students looking to start an academic career, and faculty seeking to improve their effectiveness in the classroom.
