Ignite Series: Spring 2017

The goal of the Ignite series is to facilitate discussion among faculty and staff regarding student success in online and hybrid learning environments at the University of Memphis.

SMALL TEACHING WORKSHOP (PAST EVENT)

February 3, 2017, 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

In Small Teaching, James Lang presents a strategy for improving student learning with a series of modest but powerful changes that make a big difference—many of which can be put into practice in a single class period. These strategies are designed to bridge the chasm between primary research and the classroom environment in a way that can be implemented by any faculty in any discipline, and even integrated into pre-existing teaching techniques. 

Presenter: James Lang, Ph.D., author of Small Teaching: Everyday Lessons from the Science of Learning
