WCC - ro

Pre-Registration Required (Open)

Do you want your students to move beyond passively receiving information to actively processing information? “Summarization” seems like “old hat” but it is a powerful practice that is sometimes forgotten. Learn how you can move your students from just being consumers of information to processors who then transform that information into knowledge that sticks. During this session, you will take away actionable strategies that you can use with students tomorrow.

Type: BYOD Workshop
Focus Area: Assessment, Brain Research/Neuroscience
