Keynote: José Antonio Bowen, Lessons Learned: Building Back Better

We got to see a different side of our students and of ourselves during the pandemic. After a forced reimagining of our pedagogy, campus experience, equity, use of technology, and costs, what did we learn? As we prepare for more uncertainty, what best practices from the last year do we need to sustain? Can we use what we have learned to build more engaging and inclusive classrooms, create community and reimagine our pedagogy for a new age? There will never be a better moment to improve the quality and equity of our teaching.

Workshop: José Antonio Bowen, Teaching Naked Techniques: A Practical Workshop on Designing Better Classes

 

This is a practical and active workshop for FITSI faculty that distills the latest research on how students learn into tested techniques and best practices that work. Decades of research have brought an explosion of knowledge about how human evolution has shaped the way we process, think, and remember. Technology also provides new ways for students to receive first contact with material, enhanced opportunities to connect and create community, better ways to ensure that students are prepared for class, and new options for the sequence of learning encounters and activities. Teaching is largely a design problem, and we need to design our classes for the brain in the body. This workshop provides techniques to improve student learning while providing a process to guide faculty in creating better modules and courses.
