Faculty Workshop Reflection

Special thanks to Dr. Chris Parker who led an interactive workshop titled “Deep Thought: Promoting Active Learning in the Classroom.” Dr. Parker explained how he used backward design to restructure a week’s worth of lessons in a microbiology class. After aligning learning objectives, student outcomes and assessments, Dr. Parker chose active learning strategies designed to encourage students to take ownership of the content. Workshop participants took part in a number of hands-on activities and discussed the challenges of shifting from a lecture-based teaching style.

Be sure to take a look at our complete list of workshops and RSVP for events or signup for individual consultations on the Texas Wesleyan website. Stay tuned, because Summer Institute is right around the corner!
