Some of the cool strategies discussed included, SQ3R, a reading strategy formed from its letters: Survey! Question! Read! Recite! Review! SQ3R will help students build a framework for understanding reading assignments. We also discussed the use of games, assignment calculators, and exercises that involve peer teaching.
Day Two focused on engaging the students by letting them “drive” by using techniques like Problem Based Learning and a Constructivist approach to teaching and learning. This was an excellent workshop at just the right time for me. Having just finished teaching Lib100 this semester it is fresh on my mind and I’ll be revamping my course in the coming weeks for next Fall, using some of the techniques I learned in this workshop!
