Looking for simple teaching strategies to improve student learning? Access a TLS webinar series on video


Are you looking for simple teaching strategies to improve student learning? If you are, check out the webinar series Simple Strategies to Improve Student Learning. This series of four webinars draws on Prof. James Lang’s popular book Small Teaching: Everyday Lessons from the Science of Learning to offer instructors teaching ideas that:

  • Require minimal preparation
  • Are 5-10 minute classroom or online activities
  • Can be one-time interventions

The series was offered last year. Webinar recordings are available to the McGill community. Sign in to OneDrive. Select Video > Channels > Teaching and Learning Services to watch these video recordings:

 

Remembering: Teaching students to remember important information

 

 

 

Connecting: Teaching students to organize knowledge*

 

 

 

Deliberate practice and feedback makes progress: Teaching students to develop expertise

 

 

 

Sustaining motivation: Engaging students in their learning

 

Post a comment to let us know which of these strategies you decided to implement!
