Building a learning community in which students feel belonging, support, and connection with one another is vital for their success. But how can you develop such a community? In this workshop, you will participate in a series of collaborative activities, exercises, and discussions which convey best practices for successful classroom community-building.
After this workshop, you will be able to:
Summarize recent, peer-reviewed research on pedagogical community-building
Identify common barriers to community-building and develop tools to overcome them
Use simple, evidence-based practices to build community in your classroom
Facilitators: Megan Cole (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Will Lee (email@example.com), Senior Pedagogical Fellows
This workshop partially meets the requirements for the "Collaborative Learning" module for the Certificate in Teaching Excellence.
This workshop is intended for graduate students and postdoctoral scholars audiences; however, all UCI members interested in teaching are welcome to join (including faculty, staff, and undergraduates).
