Event Details

Dear Colleagues,

Please join is us to kick off the new year with a workshop by Dr. Peter Arthur.

Research studies indicate a positive relationship between a student’s metacognition, grit, growth mindset, and academic success. These traits can all be taught, and through experience, enhanced. Further, these traits all assist students with being successful lifelong learners. This session focuses on evidence-based strategies faculty may embed in their learning environments. Participants will then be able to evaluate multiple ways these strategies can be integrated into one’s teaching.

Note: The session will draw on all participants' experience and strategies in this area and will build on what participants are already doing.

From 2005 – 2015 Dr. Peter Arthur was the Founding Director of the University of British Columiba Okanagan’s Centre for Teaching and Learning. Currently, Peter teaches in the University British Columbia Faculty of Education and the College of Graduate Studies (undergraduate: learning technology and assessment; graduate: instructional design; doctoral: teaching and learning in higher education). His current research focuses on new advanced learning models and assisting students with becoming scholarly learners.
