Using Pre-Assessments to Guide Student Learning @ CETL - Atlanta Campus, Library South, Room 100
Aug 29 @ 10:00 am – 11:00 am

What do your students know before they come to class and how does this influence their behavior and understanding during class? Your students come to class with pre-existing knowledge, skills, beliefs, and attitudes all of which influence how and what they learn and how they’ll interpret and organize new information. The ability to learn new information is dependent on pre-existing knowledge, and therefore, knowing what students know at the beginning of the semester (or before you start a new topic) can help you design instructional activities that build off of student strengths and acknowledge and address their weaknesses.
Hosted by Dr. Laura Carruth.
Appropriate for faculty and graduate students.

Creating a Classroom Full of Self-Directed Learners @ CETL - Atlanta Campus, Library South, Room 100
Sep 19 @ 10:00 am – 11:00 am

Our goal as educators is to create lifelong learners, but how do we do this when many students lack an awareness of their own cognitive abilities? “Self-directed learning” includes aspects of meta-cognition, self-initiative, self-regulation, and self-motivation, and is one of the biggest predictors of a student’s overall academic success. This is because the learner drives the learning experience and not the instructor. This workshop will explore student meta-cognition and address ways to help students see their own learning gaps and develop skills to understand the value of what and how they learn. Much of the discussion will be framed from Linda B. Nilson’s book “Creating Self-Regulated Learners”.
Hosted by Dr. Laura Carruth.
Appropriate for faculty and graduate Students.
