The Seven Principles of Effective Education – How Many Do You Use?
Friday, April 3, 10:30am – ILC 315
The fundamental aspects of effective instruction in higher education have been recognized for over twenty years. However, for many of us there is still a know-do gap, or we recognize that it is important to be reminded of effective practice. This workshop will explore the “Seven Principles of Effective (Undergraduate) Education” (Chickering and Gamson, 1987), the core elements of effective instruction. Participants are encouraged to bring a copy of your favorite syllabus in order to identify ways to incorporate the Seven Principles in your teaching.

In response to ideas introduced by Dr. Bill Roberston (keynote speaker at the January 2014 Great Ideas for Teaching and Learning Symposium), our colleague Michal Tempkin-Martinez began experimenting with student-driven inquiry in her linquistics courses. At this AL@L, Michal will introduce the ideas and strategies she has been exploring.
