Event description

Description

As professionals, we often use whiteboards to work out ideas, individually and collaboratively, and to communicate our ideas to others. In the classroom, many people use small or mid-size whiteboards to help students practice these same behaviors. Using whiteboards in the classroom also helps the instructor to see student ideas and provides a unique method of formative assessment. In this workshop, we will: discuss best practices for using whiteboards in the classroom, collaboratively develop activities that could be used in our own classrooms, identify potential challenges, and brainstorm ways to address these challenges



At the conclusion of this program participants will be able to:

  1. Summarize best practices for using whiteboards in the classroom.

  2. Identify at least one way that whiteboards could be used to help achieve a specific learning goal in one of their own courses.

  3. Draft a whiteboard activity that can be used in one of their classes.
