Description

Last fall I threw myself out of my classroom, by initiating an "à la carte menu" syllabus in a physical science General Education class. My goal was to empower students to take charge of their learning by sharing power in the classroom with them. Whether it be through class policies, assignment options or opportunities for feedback, in this learner-centered session, we'll explore data on the triumphs and disasters of fully immersing Gen Ed students into a novel and responsibility-rich classroom. This will provide a forum for faculty to share their experience of learner-centered teaching and meet others in our facilitated learning community.
