CSM Faculty Lounge
Our next CSM Faculty Lounge will be held this Friday, February 6th.
Dr. Mara Brady (Earth & Environmental Science)
“Thinking about Learning and Teaching as a Researcher Would”
CSM Faculty Lounge Discussion
To motivate for the discussion, please read Chapter 1 from the National Research Council's recent publication, Reaching Students: What Research Says about Effective Instruction in Undergraduate Science and Engineering (2015), attached to this email for your convenience . You can download the entire book and individual chapters here ( http://www.nap.edu/catalog/18687/reaching-students-what-research-says-about-effective-instruction-in-undergraduate ) .
Note: The chapter includes a few case studies under the heading "Designing Learning." While all are relevant and interesting, feel free to focus your reading efforts on just one of these, while getting a general background from the rest of the text.
**Bonus: Reflect on what you've read and experience one of the learning tools mentioned in the text. Use this form to submit a Reading Reflection before we meet on Friday (http://goo.gl/forms/JF8znxPtY6 ).
We hope you will plan to attend.
Coffee will be served!
