How can we nudge students to do the things that we know will help them learn? How can we close the loop between what students are doing in class with what they are doing (or NOT doing) outside of class?
Mark Laumakis, who has taught close to 30,000 Introductory Psychology students during his almost 20-year teaching career at San Diego State University, offers his thoughts about these questions. His approach to promoting student success in PSY 101 emphasizes the use of iClicker during class and the strategic use of LearningCurve quizzes in LaunchPad for homework. During this webinar, he will describe not only WHAT he does but also WHY he does what he does to help his students succeed in the course. He will offer practical tips and suggestions that you can incorporate into your own course, as well as data regarding the efficacy of tools like iClicker and LearningCurve quizzes. Join us for a webinar in which you'll hear ideas for engaging students and enhancing learning -- both INSIDE and OUTSIDE the classroom!"
