Adventures in (Virtual) Student-Generated Learning

Adventures in (Virtual) Student-Generated Learning
Thursday, April 16, 2020 - 1:00pm

Hi friends,

Please join us on Thursday, April 16, at 11:00 a.m. EDT for a GLCA/GLAA Consortium for Teaching and Learning (CTL)-hosted webinar entitled, "Adventures in (Virtual) Student-Generated Learning” presented by Emma Houston (DePauw '20), Jacob Correa (DePauw '21) and Beth Benedix, Professor of World Literature, Religious Studies and Community Engagement, DePauw University. The webinar will be moderated by Steven Volk, Emeritus Professor of History at Oberlin College and Co-Director of the CTL. Everyone is welcome, no need to be a member of a GLCA/GLAA school.

Description:

In February, we led an experiential workshop on the topic of student-generated learning at the AAC&U conference in Jacksonville. With our newfound circumstances, we’re searching for a way to communicate the relevance of student-generated learning in the virtual space. Now more than ever, students need faculty to guide an energized, impactful experience that reflects what is most valuable to all of them. We hope to elicit responses from faculty on their sense of what student-generated learning entails and the barriers to it. In our view, student-generated learning is centered on building relationships and a learning community, an utterly human space that combats the hopelessness we may feel in these uncertain times. 

In “Adventures in (Virtual) Student-Generated Learning,” a student/ faculty-led webinar, we seek to co-create a space that facilitates student/faculty trust, understanding, and collaboration. We will share strategies that have worked in the physical classroom and lead a brainstorming session on how those practices translate into e-learning.

Register here!

Those who register will receive a link to join the webinar of April 16, 2020 at 11:00 a.m. EDT. Please mark your calendars!
