Students working in the Library Learning Commons

I feel that explaining new concepts is sometimes more a matter of me simply talking TO students and them listening passively. I’m looking for ways to engage them more actively in getting to grips with the topic.

I’d like to know more about (or re-visit) how learning develops, so that I can plan the right sort of tasks to develop understanding of difficult concepts in my subject.

There are some ‘boring but important’ concepts that students just have to understand to progress in my subject.  How do I engage them in this learning and help them see the value?

In this workshop you will explore some of the reasons why teaching complex subjects is challenging and consider
a range of strategies to get students actively developing their understanding / working out the meaning of the new concepts.

You will apply some of the approaches to a complex concept you have identified from your subject area and leave the workshop with some practical suggestions for implementation in your teaching.
