SUBJECT: Teaching in a Nutshell: Strategies to Enhance Learning
This participatory symposium involves not only observing yourself teaching,
but also investigating how your ways of communicating affect student
comprehension. Although watching yourself on videotape can be challenging,
what you see in yourself will change you more than anything about teaching
that you may learn in the abstract.
In this symposium, the group works together to identify communication
strategies that enhance the students' learning experience. Collaboratively,
you support one another over the rough moments of embarrassment and fear,
coming to view yourself more objectively as a member of a community where
learning is reciprocal to teaching. In the process, you acquire specific
techniques for guiding and improving learning; and you perceive how your
voice and your body affect how well your students see/hear/grasp what you
are saying. Few of us have had the opportunity to focus on these subtle, yet
vital dimensions of teaching and learning.
Facilitated by Lee Potts, Professor Emeritus, Theatre & Dance
