Planning for the upcoming Symposium 2018 is underway, and Dr. Levings and graduate students are hard at work preparing flights and hotels and creating a learning agenda. During campus visits to KNUST, faculty discussed potential topics for the upcoming Symposium 2018 sessions:
MCQs - Designing and Integrating Multiple Choice Questions
ALAs - Creating Active Learning Activities that align with PBEA modules
Questioning Techniques - Engaging students through questioning
Dr. Greg Miller and graduate assistant Miranda Morris enjoyed an educational and fun trip at KNUST in Ghana over Spring Break. In addition to classroom observation, focus groups, and fascinating tourism opportunities, Dr. Miller was able able to present a thought provoking lecture over Classroom Response Systems. With over 70 faculty, staff, and students in attendance, the lecture was a boisterous and fun-filled discussion of integration of technology into the classroom. Engaging students is often thought to be one of the more difficult aspects of classroom management, and using tools like https://kahoot.com or https://www.polleverywhere.com/ help teachers keep review sessions fresh and competitive!
