Workshop: Motivating Students through Active Learning Strategies
November 20 @ 12:30 - 14:00
SALTISE Workshop @ Vanier
Are you interested in learning more about how to engage your students? Then this workshop is for you! We will present several ways to integrate strategies into your teaching that support student engagement and increase the effectiveness of instruction. These strategies are evidence-based, have been shown to increase deeper thinking and reflection in students, and can scaffold group work. The implementation and use of these strategies is made easy through SALTISE online technologies that have been designed specifically with learning in mind. We will showcase two of these platforms: myDALITE and Visual Classrooms. Both encourage students to write explanations and to consider the explanations of peers. Both provide teachers with insights into their students’ thinking along with analytics that make it easy to give students feedback. Both can be used by any disciplines with examples in English, French, Physics, History, Ethics, Chemistry, Biology, Photography and more.
