I really enjoyed working on this blog post for the Association for Talent Development (ATD) with my colleagues: Drs. Celia Popovic and Brian Nairn. Here we summarize some of our findings on participation and learning effectiveness in the context of independent and group-based work, and we include a list of recommendations to encourage student participation.
About half a year ago I started a non-profit corporation called Teaching and Learning Research In Action (TLR for short). Our mission statement: “We investigate the efficacy of teaching practices and make our findings public, particularly through non-traditional forms of dissemination”. Today we had our first group meeting. Here is some footage of our group discussing what excites us most about TLR. For more information about TLR please visit our website: https://tlraction.com.
Pop-up poetry is definitely one of the highlights of the annual Symposium on Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) for me. I was guided through an insightful, reflective process on student partnerships by Richard Harrison, resulting in ‘Evolution’ (the poem in the photo above). I’m very grateful to the Institute for SoTL and the organizers of the Symposium on SoTL for such an amazing symposium.
