Wine, Cheese and Chocolate Gathering

Event date: Tuesday, January 22, 2013, from 4:30 PM to 5:45 PM
Location: Marymount Center (UNH 3002)

Learning and Teaching Environments that Foster Transfer - Wine, Cheese, and Chocolate Gathering [Event Flyer]

Presented by: Vandana Thadani, Ph.D., Psychology 

The Wine, Cheese, Chocolate Hour (and 15 minutes) is back! These informal gatherings are a chance to share ideas and experiences related to teaching and learning, over some delicious, calorie-rich refreshments. Several of us have goals that we’d like to achieve with students—for example, metacognition, intrinsic motivation, persistence, or deeper understanding and application of course material. All of these ideas are related to this year’s program, “Learning and Teaching Environments that Foster Transfer.” For this gathering, bring any ideas about innovations you are trying (have tried) with a class that might enhance outcomes such as those listed above--or alternatively, bring goals you’d like to achieve with students that might benefit from collective brainstorming. For those who attended the Dondi Dionisio and Matt Siniawski's afternoon presentation on Standards Based Grading, we can also continue our conversation about this topic. I hope you’ll join me and our colleagues to chat, share, reconnect, eat and drink, or just absorb!

Refreshments will be provided, please RSVP to teachers@lmu.edu or call x85866.

This event is part of Vandana Thadani's Faculty Associate project Learning and Teaching Environments that Foster Transfer.
