“Work it, own it!” Promoting engagement by granting students more agency in your course
July 29 @ 11:00 am - 12:15 pm EDT
Research in educational psychology prominently highlights the importance of students taking a more ‘active’ and ‘agentic’ role in the learning process, rather than merely being passive recipients of course content and lecture-based information. When they can ‘own’ it, they’ll be more likely to learn it and use it! Rooted in social-constructivist theory, this workshop, led by Ron Whiteman, will aim to help you develop ideas for how to get your students more engaged by increasing their ‘activity’ and ‘agency’ in your course and their ‘ownership’ over the learning process.
