Marinating Minds: Getting Started Before We Get Started

621 views

Published on

Learning, like cooking, happens in stages, yet limited class time often prevents us from reaching the latter learning levels, where deep thinking begins. However, by using a combination of technology and pre-class assignments, students can soak up course content before they walk in the door. We will design our own pre-, peri-, and post-class activities as well as examine classes where technology and pre-class assignments have already been used to foster deep learning.

During this session, participants will:
1. Explore hierarchies of thinking and discuss which levels of thinking are most appropriate before class, during class, and after class.
2. Take one of their own most difficult course topics and design pre-class, class, and post-class activities for this topic to leverage classroom resources and foster a deeper learning experience.
3. Identify learning tools for implementing these pre-, peri-, and post-class activities.
