1:00 - 2:00 - Keynote Address: Motivating Students
Keynote Speaker: Dr. Sarah Leupen, University of Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC) When students are motivated, they learn more – and teaching is a lot more enjoyable, too. As teachers, we feel often that we expend more energy working to teach and assist our students that the student do learning the material. What can we do to change this? Is it even our responsibility to motivate the students, anyway? We will discuss these questions as well as the theory and the practice of student motivation.
2:20 - 3:30 - STEM Workshop: The "Content Monster"
Presenter: Dr. Sarah Leupen, University of Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC) Many of the most effective teaching practices involve spending some, or even most, of our time together in class having students answer questions, solve problems, and otherwise engage with our content. How can we spend time on these types of practices, yet also have enough time to “cover” all of the content that the students need to learn? I have good news for you in this workshop, which will help you banish the content monster from your classroom, while still allowing your students to learn more content (and truly understand it better) than they did before.
