Effectively Engaging Students in their Learning

Wednesday, January 26, 2022 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm

In bi-weekly Virtual Lunch and Learn & Best Practices in Teaching gatherings Graduate Teaching Assistants share their knowledge about teaching, teaching and technology tools as well as discuss research of teaching, book chapters relevant to work in an instructional setting. Anyone interested in these topics can join these meetings.

(11:45 am: Check- in and Community Connect)  

As educators we are always looking for ways to engage students and help them consolidate their learning as well as critically reflect on their learning. In this session we will introduce five methods you can use in the online and face-to-face setting. We will start building a repertoire of these practices starting with a gallery walk, (virtual) sticky notes, short reflection activities and we welcome everyone to share their effective student engagement opportunities. 

After this session participants will be able to use up to five engagement strategies, describe considerations for inclusivity, and share best practices for engaging students.  

Facilitated by: 

Dr. Stefanie Baier (Director of Instructional Development for Graduate Students and Postdocs) and the GTA TLC
