Flipping Your Classroom with Team-Based Learning
Tuesday, March 31, 2020
1 p.m.
Online

Imagine a room full of students who studied BEFORE class and stay engaged the ENTIRE class and the exam is weeks away.  Many instructors think this is only possible in our dreams, but the use of team-based learning (TBL) can help make it a reality.  TBL is a process that allows students to develop skills in self-directed learning, holds them accountable to learning these concepts, and creates a safe learning environment to explore application of class content.  During the process, students also strengthen communication and teamwork skills.  This workshop will introduce you to the basic components of TBL and identify critical elements that keep students engaged.  The workshop will be interactive and will model the TBL process.  Prior to attending the workshop there is a 4-page summary of TBL to review. This webinar is presented by the Center for Teaching Excellence at UF.

How Innovative Teaching Affects Those with Learning Differences
Thursday, April 2, 2020
2:30 p.m. – 4 p.m.
Online

Innovative teaching strategies (e.g. flipped classroom, active/collaborative learning) are becoming more common in modern education. However, some of these activities are more compatible than others with students who have learning disabilities (LD) and/or attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). In this workshop, participants will learn how certain aspects of some innovative teaching strategies might positively or negatively affect the performance of students with LD/ADHD. There will also be an activity that will attempt to simulate the challenges that students with LD/ADHD face. I will also share my personal experience with what it was like as a student with ADHD in classrooms that practiced innovative teaching techniques and provide recommendations to improve these approaches. This webinar is presented by the Center for Teaching Excellence at UF.
