Pedagogical Boosters

Last week, Cub Kahn posted a blog titled, Practical Solutions to Remote Learning Issues. In that issue, an infographic on remote learning issues, along with practical, evidence-based solutions were shared. This week, the Center for Teaching and Learning is sharing a second infographic, Pedagogical Boosters. But don’t worry, while we often may feel a pinch of pain when receiving shots, these boosters won’t hurt!

During this unique time, there is an abundance of literature, webinars, and resources on how to teach swarming our inboxes and internet. This infographic is intended to help you in making fewer decisions and should save you time in reading and doing research. For each of the following goals: 1) course design, 2) discuss content, 3) foster critical thinking, 4) build community engagement, and 5) assess learning, a specific, quick, (and did I mention painless) booster (or approach) is provided. Like last week’s solutions, these boosters can be applied to any teaching modality in the coming months.
