Introducing SALG: How SENCER's Course Assessment Tool Protects Innovative Teaching

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In this session we will use a SENCER Model Course focused on the natural sciences to teach biology and public policy through civic issues as a guide. Mysteries of Migration is a model course that has undergone revision over many years accommodating both non-majors and majors in the natural sciences.æ In consideration of developing or modifying a course you teach, we will briefy consider: how people learn, learning goals, adding appropriate experiential learning to courses and student assessment of courses. This interactive session will address pedagogical approaches used over the years in Mysteries of Migration as a guide for lessons learned. There will be an opportunity to discuss potential modifcations you may wish to make to courses you teach.
