PBEA-PLC Symposium Highlights
The Iowa State University Agricultural Education and Studies Department would like to once again thank all of our visiting colleagues from Africa for their participation in the summer 2018 PBEA-PLC Teaching and Learning Symposium. At the Symposium, we were able to highlight topics suggested by faculty from African universities and focus on the issues that you felt were most relevant and useful in your classrooms. By streamlining our conference we were able to focus on increasing understanding of teaching and learning methods such as improving MCQs (multiple choice questions), developing stronger ALAs (Applied Learning Activities, and growing stronger relationships between students and faculty through peer mentoring. As a way to continue to foster conversation and create deeper connections to the material, the PBEA-PLC newsletter will continue to focus on these topics and any questions that may arise from the material that was presented at the Symposium.
