New in Pedagogy Research: Student Perceptions and Effective Teaching




Date: Monday, March 20
Time: 2:00-3:15 p.m.
Location: ND Room, 202 LaFortune Student Center
Presenter(s): Rachel Banke, and Erik-john Fuhrer, Graduate Associates of the Kaneb Center

Drawing on recently published scholarship on teaching and learning, this workshop will explore what research tells us about the perceptions students bring to the classroom about you, your instructional methods, and their own learning achievements. Where are there gaps between student expectations and instructors' approaches? Where do students over- or under-estimate their own abilities and learning? By illuminating the assumptions we all bring to the classroom, this workshop will help instructors communicate better with students and teach more effectively.
Learning Goals:

After successfully completing this workshop you will be able to:

  • Understand what assumptions and beliefs students bring to the classroom about teaching methods, their instructors, and how learning works.
  • Implement strategies in your teaching to bridge the gap between students’ assumptions and your teaching practices.
  • Tailor your presentation to improve student learning and behavior.
