As community college faculty members and professional staff, we know good teaching. In fact, we specialize in it (i.e., experiential education, applied learning, student-centered instruction, interactive teaching). However, what are the mechanisms by which we practice these pedagogies of engagement? What is the learning science that maximizes students’ prior experiences and activates their working memory? This webinar reviews the concepts and theories that are the foundations for enacting specific instructional strategies that facilitate students’ ability to retain, transfer, and apply learning.
Webinar participants identify the hallmarks of experiential teaching and learning, learn specific instructional strategies that facilitate applied learning outcomes in all disciplines, and gain an understanding about how pedagogies of engagement activate neural networks in the brain that increase student ownership and valuation of learning.
