CITLA Spring Symposium 2015
SELF-REGULATION AND ACTIVE LEARNING
Tuesday, May 19, 2015, 9:00 - 3:00 p.m., Warwick Campus Room 4090
Join Dr. David McConnell as he presents a 2-part workshop on active learning techniques, and on the non-cognitive, or metacognitive, aspects of our students’ learning.
Part 1 will focus on how we can help students learn how to learn, how we can motivate them to learn, and how we can work with our students’ attitudes, perceptions, and values.
Part 2 will showcase successful techniques in active learning, research-based learning, interactive engagement, and engaged pedagogies to help make the classroom more student-centered.
Dr. McConnell is Professor of Marine, Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at North Carolina State University.
