Summer Teaching Institute

A two day certificate program designed to connect and inspire Brock teachers. 

Tuesday August 20 - Wednesday August 21 2013

Research tells us that active engagement in the classroom promotes motivation and learning. Taking creative approaches to teaching and learning also inspires teachers to stay fresh and engaged themselves – as leaders and ongoing learners. This institute offers an opportunity for faculty and instructors to explore strategies, tools and techniques that will inspire – whether this is your first year or your twenty-first. The session is designed to help participants

·      examine tools and processes that promote learning and memory;

·      identify prompts that enhance interest and make complex or abstract material more relevant and accessible;

·      explore reflective activities and strategies that help the students and the teacher deepen the learning and assess its impact.

The session will be highly interactive. While there will be some brief lectures, participants will learn primarily through experiencing and then reflecting upon activities and exercises, as well as sharing ideas from their own tool box. There will be also opportunities to consider how these tools can be adapted to suit a variety of learning outcomes.

"Those who are inspired... inspire.”
