Presented by Mat Spano
Getting students to use source material in a meaningful way is one of the greatest challenges for professors in any discipline. In this workshop, we will explore the strategy of creating imaginative, source-based dialogues as a means for students to develop proficiency in critical reading, note-taking, and especially synthesizing and critiquing the ideas of the respective authors--including the students' own ideas. This strategy involves not only established higher order critical thinking skills, but also imagination and artistic creativity as well as some fun and entertaining apps. Join us for an imaginative dialogue about how to use imaginative dialogues as a learning tool in the college classroom!
Lunch will be provided in Center I.
