Description

Becoming a better teacher takes deliberate thought and action. While attending conferences or workshops on teaching is extremely helpful, the techniques and skills learned need to be applied and evaluated in an ongoing process. This session will introduce the Teaching Development Cycle (formative feedback - pedagogical knowledge - implementation - assessment - instructional awareness) and help teachers know how to apply it. We will also examine different formative feedback techniques and attendees will be asked to use a number of them in the session. Time will also be spent creating a plan to improve teaching.
