What can scientists do in a limited time frame to nudge student thinking from passive to engaged? How can one do this without significantly adding to their existing workload? The VCU community now has the opportunity to learn about the science and art of crafting significant learning experiences for students through an upcoming workshop.
The C. Kenneth and Dianne Wright Center for Clinical and Translational Research and Tompkins-McCaw Library are co-sponsoring a brown bag lunch workshop that will walk participants through a variety of best teaching practices that can be contextualized and transferred to individual teaching methods.
Lisa Phipps, Ph.D., Pharm.D., online learning innovation specialist for the the VCU Academic Learning Transformation Lab, and Enoch Hale, Ph.D., director for the VCU Center for Teaching and Learning Excellence, will lead this free presentation on Monday, Oct. 3 from noon to 1:00 p.m. at the Tompkins-McCaw Library, Room 2-010 (second floor).
