This cohort-based series for Postdoctoral Scholars and Graduate Students will focus on pedagogical theories and practices in postsecondary teaching and learning. You will critically explore what researchers currently know about how learning actually happens and navigate scholarship on how to implement formative and summative assessment. Participants will reflect upon and design a lesson plan for your own teaching context that enhances learning, and develop a learning-centred activity for practical classroom application.
By the end of this course participants will have completed the two-part Capstone project and 3 Modules:
• How Does Learning Work? The Basics of Teaching and Learning
• Complexities in Lesson Planning
• Formative and Summative Assessments in Higher Education
