Goldfield Room, 3rd floor

Description

In this session, we’ll share UNLV faculty’s strategies for designing assignments that promote students’ curiosity and critical thinking. Then we’ll review findings from recent research on UNLV students’ learning and apply those to the design of your own course activities and assignments. Insights from research on best teaching/learning practices in higher education will inform our work. Participants will leave with an understanding of the state of research, a draft assignment for one of their courses, and a concise set of strategies for designing assignments and projects that inspire UNLV students’ learning.
