In the 1990s, a particular group of students at UC Berkeley were failing calculus at the horrendous rate of 60%. Berkeley created learning communities for this group, and the failure rate dropped from 60% to…FOUR percent. Without reducing the rigor of the classes. The value of having company in one’s learning journey is hard to overstate. Get ideas from this workshop about how you can create such communities in your own classroom.
This workshop will take place over the easy-to-use Zoom videoconference platform, so you don't have to be on campus! You DO have to register, because we'll send the Zoom info to people the day before.
This is the fifth in a series of five separate workshops for Winter & Spring under the umbrella "Five (practically foolproof) ways to help your students succeed.” The topics are: Organizing your class, Transparency, Metacognition, Productive persistence, and Classroom learning communities. Watch the Faculty Center email for dates!
Special Feature: Anyone who attends at least 3 of the 5 workshops, or downloads electronic versions of all 5 and sends me an email about what you plan to do in your class as a result, will be entered into a drawing to win 5 books referenced in the workshops.
