Instructional MicroShifts to Magnify Student Empowerment
Saturday, April 4th, 1:40pm - 2:25pm - Strategy Sessions
It can be formidable to majorly overhaul instruction. Yet, pedagogical change can combat student disengagement. The focus of this mini-session is on strategic microshifts that teachers can make to existing pedagogy to heighten student personalization and engagement, within the framework of project based learning. These include: making dramatic changes to student groupings, front loading projects, and including an external audience. Participants will join a swift design burst to incorporate collaboration and feedback and will leave with an understanding of the why and how of these strategies along with a plan for integrating at least one strategy in an existing class project.
