Back by popular demand! Led by Rebecca Krucoff, faculty member in the Graduate Center for Planning and the Environment.
Wednesday February 1, 12:00-2:00pm, online.
In this workshop we will explore strategies for creating lesson plans for high student engagement using the planning tools of backwards design, including: Establishing goals, creating learning outcomes, and developing purposeful learning activities. Participants will choose a lesson topic from their syllabus to apply these strategies and develop lesson plans practicing a format called the Workshop Model. The goal of this session is to leave everyone feeling comfortable with fundamental tools and strategies for lesson planning that will support the creation of meaningful lessons on a variety of topics. A $100 stipend is available for part time faculty who attend.
