Session 3 (March 10)

Session 3 (March 10)

Welcome to Wednesday, March 10

A plan:

  • We’ll start with writing: updates on our courses, particularly thinking about students’ participation. Share in our Currents Community OR write in whatever mode works for you (pen and paper…fabulous technology).
    • Did you trace/notice who participates in your class sessions? Who seems to be inside/outside the class community? Any thoughts about what is working and what could be better in terms of participation?
    • Did you try out a new activity or assignment? How did it go?
    • Did you survey students about what was working? What did you learn?
  • Link to slides: we’ll curate ideas together. Teams crowdsource structures, activities, roles to increase student participation.
  • Back together: share out ideas
  • Prep for consultation sessions after break. Week of March 29: try to find 1 hour.
