On behalf of the TALL Education Committee, please join us for our education session on Trends in Instruction delivered by Monique Flaccavento. Register early as there is a maximum capacity of 25 attendees.
Wondering if there are new tools and strategies available to engage the learners in your workshops? Worried about how you will teach your learners everything they need to know when you’ll only be meeting with them for a short time? Looking for ways to refresh your teaching? This session will introduce the latest trends in instruction including the flipped classroom, online learning, outcomes-based learning, personalized / self-directed learning, bring your own device (byod), the shift from teaching tools to focusing on bigger picture thinking, and the importance of developing learner dispositions (i.e. attitudes, values, and habits of mind). The session will also provide you with an opportunity to consider how you might introduce some of these practical tools and strategies into your own teaching.
