The Art, Craft, and Practice of Teaching…
Dr. Cinda Heeren
University of British Columbia
Tuesday March 26 | 4:00-5:00pm
2310 Everitt Lab
In this talk we will examine how the interplay between student wellness, student belonging, and student learning shapes the policies and pedagogy we deploy in our classrooms. Based upon known results about student anxiety in an active learning classroom (Brownell, 2018), and early indications from our own current work, our discussion will center on shaping future investigations into these matters. Finally, we will explore practical approaches to the integration of modern science and engineering pedagogy into a teaching practice which is personal, inclusive, and sustainable.
