  • LEARNING TO LEARN: IT’S ONLY EASY IF YOU ALREADY KNOW HOW TO DO IT.
  • Here’s the big takeaway from this class: helping our students to “learn how to learn” requires us, as professors and scholars, to structure certain forms of attention, preparation, equity, and innovation into the courses we design. These do not happen by accident.
  • WE DO NOT EVEN SEE HOW WE PERPETUATE INEQUALITY; WE NEED TO COMPENSATE FOR OUR BLINDSPOTS
  • Student-centered learning is literally about exemplifying and consciously and conscientiously structuring the learning experience so every student understands the power of their own learning. Again, this does not happen by accident.

So what does this mean?  How do I start?

  • Storyboard –Beginning, middle and end –storyboard guides design
  • Explore themes – Outcomes, Objectives, Modules, weeks
  • Visualize –videos, charts, drawing, maps, models, pictures, simulations address Universal Design
