Teaching With Toys: Abstract < - > Concrete

Facilitated by:

Mary Klages, Professor of English
Eric Stade, President’s Teaching Scholar and Professor of Mathematics
Mike Eisenberg, President’s Teaching Scholar and Professor of Computer Science

In elementary education we learn hands on. What happens to that style in the college classroom? In this workshop we will explore using concrete artifacts to illuminate abstract concepts within our disciplines.

Topics will include learning styles and the importance of play in the college classroom.

Wednesday Oct 10, 3:00-4:30 p.m., ATLAS 200 (No registration required - workshops are for instructional faculty)
