Event description

Description

Structured and scaffolded lessons are key to engaging students in high-quality active learning. Ensuring student engagement requires careful planning of activities that not only ask them to complete a task, but also help them to understand and reflect upon what they are doing, and why.

Participants will:

  • Understand how to communicate learning objectives to students and how to fit it into the flow of the lesson

  • Develop strategies for designing effective collaborative group work and dialogue

  • Examine the difference between low-level and high-level discussion questions

Light food will be provided.
