Tactile Teaching

Posted on 11/30/2015 10:56:19 AM

All faculty and teaching associates are invited to attend the last Reflective Practice meeting of the semester, “Tackling Tactile Teaching,” on Thursday, December 3, from 3:30–4:45 in the HUB Allegheny Room.

Last spring, some creative colleagues were awarded a grant to purchase experimental teaching materials such as large post-it paper, small post-it notes, crayons and index cards. They used these low-fi technologies—tactile, kinetic, tangible technologies—to teach Composition I, Composition II and Humanities Literature.

Come and see what they learned and how you may be able to teach your students to step away from the technology for a while and learn in a fun, new (old?) way. 

Presented by Bryna Siegel Finer, Lynn Shelly, and Oriana Gatta.

Refreshments will be provided.

This event is for faculty and teaching associates only.
