Dawson Ped Day is October 15th – Register NOW!

Opening Plenary with Saul Carliner:  Teaching in Turbulent Times (and We’re Not Just Talking about COVID-19)

Even without considering COVID, experts predicted disruption in higher education over the next decade or so resulting from a combination of trends in demographics, technology,and society. When COVID hit, it unearthed some additional considerations. This session first explores these disruptions, then suggests ten specific ways these disruptions might affect the day-to-day work of Cégep instructors, including the impacts on the student body and their expectations, the nature of courses being taught, and the nature of teaching.

Session titles:

    • Active Learning Pedagogies Are Not Just For Better Learning, They Are A Form Of Social Justice
    • Beyond Orange Shirt Day: Reading Discussion
    • Empowering and Motivating Students Through Better Assignment Design
    • Helping Students Develop Autonomy in Your Course: Tips to Foster Self-Regulation Skills
    • Moodle 3.10 New Features & How to Use Office 365 to Manage your Files in Moodle
    • A.I. in Education: The Promise and the Peril
