Instructors want their students to learn and remember the central ideas or concepts taught in their courses. However, research shows traditional instruction is not particularly effective for developing deep conceptual understanding. This workshop session introduces the idea of teaching backwards using inductive teaching where the motivation precedes the new content in a learner centered approach. The many faces of inductive learning and teaching will be explored. Research shows this to be a much more effective approach to repair common and persistent student misconceptions. Participants will be given the opportunity to develop inquiry-based instructional materials for use in their own classes. A Certificate of Achievement will be available to anyone who attends the entire morning session and completes the application process.

There will be concurrent sessions in the afternoon after lunch.
