Zoom Meeting - Virtual

Education Resources

 The great debate concerning how best to teach reading began decades ago and continues. In this session the Panelists, Dr. David Pearson Berkeley), and Dr. Tim Rasinski (Kent State University) will present issues related to the Science of Reading and how it can be put in to practice with the Art of Teaching Reading. Some questions to be answered are:
   What do we need to follow in the Science of Reading?
   How do we define the art of reading instruction and why is it important?
   What does the science and art of reading instruction look like in the classroom?
   We must teach with the science but also our heads and our hearts. The individual differences in children must include an artful manner of presentation of instruction.

Teaching the World: How Remote Learning Facilitates Global Perspectives

Wednesday, March 3, 2021 7:00pm - 9:00pm

Zoom Meeting - Virtual

Education Resources

While the pandemic has imposed many restrictions on schools and teachers, it has also eliminated some barriers of time and distance and inspired educators to explore possibilities to build local-global connections and engage more broadly with the world using technology and diverse curricular materials. The Teaching the World two-hour session covers a range of topics related to global education in the remote learning context. We begin with a keynote presentation by Jacquelyn León of Locally Made, Globally Grown, followed by examples of how educators are putting global education into action in elementary and secondary contexts. Children’s book authors will discuss ways to use literature to make local-global connections, and we will close with a panel of educators who will share the ways they put global education into action and reflect on these practices from an equity framework.

GSE Brown Bag Lecture - The Rules of Student Engagement: Designing Effective Course Environments by Erica Holan Lucci, Ph.D.

Wednesday, March 3, 2021 12:00pm - 1:00pm

Zoom Meeting - Virtual

Brown Bag Lecture Series

Remote learning, virtual learning, asynchronous, synchronous, hybrid, hyflex, eLearning – there is an abundance of terminology currently in use to describe online learning. Whether you are teaching face-to-face, online, or in a blended format, the research is conclusive: the learning environment – digital or otherwise – must be presented to students in a clear, cohesive format that is easily navigable, where course objectives, module objectives, (active) learning activities, and assessments are in alignment with each other and the purpose of the course itself. Further, students must feel like they have a stake in their own learning beyond the final grade they earn in the course; the more engaged they are, the more motivation they have to become active participants in their own learning. This presentation will discuss research-based instructional design practices that educators can use to enhance their (online) course environments and, in turn, improve their students’ learning experience.
