Topic: Taking reflective teaching to the next level
During the lunch, Dr. Scott Franklin from Rochester Institute of Technology will discuss the topic “Taking reflective teaching to the next level.” Caring, committed instructors are reflective, thinking deeply about their methods, what worked and what did not, and why students struggle with concepts and topics. This lunch discussion will explore how we can take reflective teaching to the next level. The exercise has direct implications for STEM courses of all disciplines and environments, particularly lecture. After an initial example, this lunch discussion will elicit from participants specific topics from their own disciplines and engage the group in a discussion about productive directions for further reflection.
