Reading as Active Learning in STEM Disciplines
Apr 4, 2023, 1:30 - 2:30 PM
Virtual via Zoom
How many times have you asked your class a question only to realize that just a few (or maybe none) of your students have done the assigned reading? Working with students who are not prepared for class is a common frustration among STEM faculty especially since there is often a large amount of material to cover in any given course. In this workshop, you will learn how to turn reading assignments into opportunities for active learning. We will discuss some of the research on how students learn from reading, explore how to teach your students to get more out of reading, and practice strategies for designing more engaging reading prompts, guides and classroom activities. The small changes discussed in this workshop can have large and long-lasting impacts for your students, so be sure to join the session!
All faculty, post docs and graduate students that are Mason affiliated are welcome to attend.
