Objetivos y metodología

Participants will access best educational practices that help students take control of their own learning by:

  1. Learning how students learn.
  2. Reflecting on how they as participants learn.
  3. Developing class techniques that help students recognize and address how they learn.
  4. Provide assessment techniques for students and faculty to reflect on their learning.

The course will have Lecture/Discussion (30%), Group work (30%), project development and Presentation (40%).


The course will have a final project for assessment. The project must demonstrate (1) an understanding of how students can learn in their discipline/class, (2) how the faculty can create an environment for students to engage and reflect upon their learning, (3) develop an assessment device to provide for themselves and for the student.
