Homework That’s Not Busywork

Thursday, March 9, 2017 -
2:30pm to 3:30pm

Bruininks 530A

This workshop will address what can happen to enhance learning – and teaching – when we reframe “homework” as “preparing for class work.”  We’ll explore strategies teachers have used to (1) create authentic, small pre-class and follow up assignments, (2) connect preparing for class work to class sessions, and (3) engage students in learning how to learn in your discipline.  The term busy work won’t even cross their minds -- or yours.
