Video created by Jennifer Bilello Employee on Dec 4, 2017

    This talk will focus on how teaching and learning in smaller chunks is a much more effective delivery system, which encourages more deliberate instruction and more long term learning and retention for students. It also happens to cater to Millennials who more generally might be cast as multi-taskers. More importantly, however, it does a better job or addressing the needs of a more demographically and skills diverse population, for whom traditional approaches might feel inaccessible. I would present the case for teaching in smaller chunks, the logistics of doing so, by example, and evidence in the research and less scientific evidence from my classes with diverse student body.
