Curious to see how your colleagues are using active learning in their classes? Want to experience an interactive lecture with keynote speaker Dr Jared Cooney Horvath, an Educational Neuroscientist from the University of Melbourne?
We invite you to join us at the Teaching using Engaging and Empowering Pedagogies event as part of this year's Celebrating Learning and Teaching 2019 calendar.
Teaching Using Engaging and Empowering Pedagogies
See how your colleagues are using active learning in their classes and experience an interactive lecture.
Opening Address and Keynote Session
Professor Debra Henly
Senior Deputy Vice Chancellor
Register and have arrival tea and coffee, then take a seat for a welcome to the day from Professor Ross Guest (Dean, Learning & Teaching, GBS and Chair of the University Active Learning Working Party). Professor Debra Henly (Senior Deputy Vice Chancellor) will then give the opening address: Learning & Teaching at Griffith: What does the future hold?
Dr Jared Cooney Horvath
Our keynote speaker is Dr Jared Cooney Horvath, an Educational Neuroscientist at the Melbourne Graduate School of Education, University of Melbourne. This session will be a little different to a usual keynote address. Jared's presentation, entitled The Lecture Ain't Dead: How to Ensure Engagement & Learning During Lectures, will use knowledge gained from the science of learning to demonstrate simple active learning strategies that can be used in a large class lecture.
Open Class Sessions
After the keynote, you can then choose to attend open classes facilitated by Griffith educators. In these sessions, you will experience engaging and empowering pedagogies from a student perspective. This is a unique opportunity, not to be missed.
