Plant Breeding Teaching & Learning Symposium
July 31-August 4 on the ISU campus
Are you ready? Faculty from each of the PBEA African partner Universities will be attending this event, as well as representatives from ISU Agronomy Department., RuFORUM, AGRA and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
The primary goal of the Symposium is to help faculty improve the use of PBEA E-Learning Modules in their classrooms and to improve classroom learning-centered teaching techniques. The tentative Agenda be downloaded here. Faculty will be engaged in our learn by doing philosophy by creating a lesson plan that corresponds to a PBEA E-learning module that they can use in their teaching this next academic year. The lesson plan will include use of one of the many learner-centered techniques that will be shared during the symposium.
So bring your laptop and/or class files to draw upon. Symposium details will be mailed out soon.
