Abstract

Are all teaching practices equal? How can we enhance student learning? What classroom practices lead to student learning and what practices create barriers for student learning? These are some of the questions that will be raised during this workshop. Participants will be encouraged to review and critically engage with their own teaching/learning contexts and imagine alternative approaches to teaching/learning that can be implemented in their context. Participants will leave the workshop with a deeper understanding of the relationship between teaching and learning and how they can use this understanding in their own contexts.
