The Power of an Index Card
Susan Currie Sivek
They're small but powerful. Simple index cards can be used to energize discussions, check knowledge, increase engagement, and enable hands-on learning. Susan Currie Sivek will explain a few ways she has used these basic tools in the classroom and provide a list of possibilities for creative applications.
Doppelgänger and Alter Egos
One of our best teaching resources is the ability of our students to reach conclusions based on inquiry. One-on-one class discussion can be quite productive, but the exchange of opinions between students sitting in the same adjacent seats day for day can too easily devolve into idle chatter about anything but the topic at hand. “Doppelgänger” or “alter ego” exercises can spark renewed interest in others’ opinions and foster productive collaboration.
Amy Scholer will have lunch tickets available for you to pick up in advance, and you may choose what you'd like to eat in Dillin. You may use the meal ticket before or after the presentation but you might want to arrive a little early to get through Dillin lines prior to the meeting.
