Description

Becoming a better teacher takes deliberate thought, reflection, 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 reflective teaching through the Teaching Development Cycle framework (formative feedback - pedagogical knowledge - implementation - assessment - instructional awareness) and will 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 reflecting and creating a plan to improve teaching. As the opening session to the TTT Conference, this session will help attendees prepare to apply the rest of the sessions during the conference.
