Video is a great way to explain complicated ideas in a straightforward and memorable way. Animated explainer videos combine storytelling, music and visuals to make complex concepts more understandable.  Most people prefer to learn visually, making explainer videos a tool that appeals to a broad spectrum of students. This hands-on workshop will introduce you to the whiteboard animation software, VideoScribe with which you will draw and record an illustrated story.

We will also examine some different forms of peer assessment and tackle some of the challenges that come with assessing groups. Finally we will explore some of the biggest challenges in using teams in the current classroom; developing teams in accordance with the principles of student accessibility and figuring out how to deal with teams that become dysfunctional. This workshop will emphasize practical tips to help integrate groups/teams into your classes, and will include strong interactive components.

Learning Is Misunderstood (part of the "Make It Stick" series)Thu, 7 Feb 20191:00pm - 2:15pm1/25Magdalen Normandeau (Physics + CETL)

The thread that binds together the sessions in this series is the book "Make It Stick: The Science of Successful Learning" by Brown, Roediger and McDaniel. From the description of the book on the publisher's website:
"To most of us, learning something “the hard way” implies wasted time and effort. Good teaching, we believe, should be creatively tailored to the different learning styles of students and should use strategies that make learning easier. Make It Stick turns fashionable ideas like these on their head. Drawing on recent discoveries in cognitive psychology and other disciplines, the authors offer concrete techniques for becoming more productive learners.

Speaking most urgently to students, teachers, trainers, and athletes, Make It Stick will appeal to all those interested in the challenge of lifelong learning and self-improvement."

Each session in the series centres on one chapter from the book. This particular session is related to Chapter 1 - Learning Is Misunderstood.
