The active learning workshop originally scheduled for Wednesday, January 24th is being postponed to accommodate an extended orientation proposal deadline of February 28th. The workshop will now take place:
In order to reserve your spot please email Anjali Pattanayak at firstname.lastname@example.org. You will receive an outlook invite to confirm your attendance.
This workshop is geared towards members of the Edgewood College community who are interested in submitting a workshop proposal for a session during orientation. We will explore learner centered strategies to use during your session to encourage active learning and student engagement. These strategies are ones which you can include in the interactive activity section of your proposal.
We're looking for presenters who would be interested in leading a workshop for orientation next August.
We are moving to a conference style schedule for orientation where, rather than having students in large groups attending one specific mandatory session, we are asking students to choose a session that best meets their needs within a particular tag (wellness, academic success, diversity, etc). Students will be expected to attend sessions in the various tags, they will just have an option as to how to fulfill that expectation, much as they are able to take a variety of classes based on their interests and needs to fulfill tags for graduation. We are also limiting the sizes of attendance in these workshops to 20-40 students so that we can incorporate interactive activities to better incorporate best practices in teaching and learning into our orientation format. In order to best meet the diverse needs of our students and to leverage the strengths of the many members of the campus community, we are reaching out to ask for proposals for the workshops that we offer during orientation within those various tags.
