Winter Interlude with Special Guest Linda Nilson, Ph.D.

Please note that this session has two parts, which are thematically related but different in content. You are welcome to attend either or both, but please indicate below your intentions.
ITLAL WINTER INTERLUDE Make your students the conscious agents of their own learning Do your students ever float through your course without really taking in the material in? Do they seem to forget it as soon as the next exam is over? You may wonder, Do they not know how to read? Are they lazy? Are they bored? Interesting hypotheses, but maybe some other things are at play, as well. These sessions are designed to offer some insight into what’s happening when students’ fail to become the agents of their own learning, and what, specifically, you might do to change that.
