GTA Virtual Lunch & Learn- Learner-Centered Teaching

Wednesday, November 9, 2022 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm

Effective teaching fosters an inclusive learning environment through organizing instruction to encourage students to be dynamic participants who think critically, and question assumptions and biases, and it draws on students’ lived experiences (Barkley and Howell, 2022).

In this session we will introduce characteristics and principles of student-centered teaching and share methods and activities that have worked for us to engage students in their own learning, using collaborative techniques, reflective practices, and effective note-taking strategies. After this session participants will be able to use effective learning-centered strategies, describe considerations for inclusivity, and share best practices for engaging students.

Facilitated by The GTA TLC
