IDS: Teaching Resources for Faculty: The Millennial Classroom: Strategies for Engagement

Goals

  • The goal of the August 17, 2017 session is to identify the characteristics of our students as millennial students, their strengths and weaknesses as learners, to collect good practices of active learning, and to brainstorm strategies for engaging Benedictine students in the classroom whether face to face or on-line.
     
  • The goal for the August 18, 2017 session is good course design, using backward design to ensure the learning goals drive the structure, content and assessment of the material. This will help participants think through their courses from the beginning of the seminar, giving them a frame for the activities and readings to come.
