Mix Up Your Practice (part of the Wed, 20 Feb 20191:30pm - 2:30pm19/25Ken Seaman (Kinesiology)

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 3 - Mix Up Your Practice.

Peer-assessment as a Driver of Transferable Skills - WEBINAR/DISCUSSIONThu, 28 Feb 20192:00pm - 3:30pm3/20Steve Joordens, a 3M National Teaching Fellow, University of Toronto

When our students leave our institutions they will enter a continually changing job market, and they will ultimately work in a number of different contexts before settling into a career. Yes, the courses we teach them will be valuable to them, but even more valuable are the transferable skills we help them develop; skills like critical and creative thought, and efficient two-way communication. How do we develop these skills well? And how do we know if our attempts to develop them are working? 

In this webinar, Professor Steve Joordens, a 3M National Teaching Fellow from the University of Toronto, will highlight the challenge of equipping students with the skills needed for the work of tomorrow, and the potential of peer-assessment to provide clear answers to these challenges. He will highlight an approach that combines technology-enabled peer-assessment with the principled use of validated rubrics in a way that both deepens the pedagogical experience for students, while also providing “on the fly” measures of any transferable skill that can be captured by a rubric.

Viewing of the webinar will be followed by a discussion.
