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 (you must sign in to view the videos)
Post a comment to let us know which of these strategies you decided to implement!
