2021 Teaching Methods Virtual Event Recording

On April 27th, the Instruction Section’s Teaching Methods Committee hosted a virtual event titled: Enabling the Teachable Moment: Motivating for Learning Readiness. Presenter Laura Saunders drew on learning theory related to “desirable difficulties” prior knowledge, and motivation to suggest that we can take steps to enable the teachable moment with our students. In taking these steps, we can reframe narratives about “struggling” or “reluctant” learners to focus on environmental, rather than internal, factors to help move the learning forward. We invite you to view the recording here.
