Student-centered activities workshop

Institute for Middle East Studies

How can you facilitate student-centered learning in your classroom? In this hands-on workshop, the presenter will model novice and intermediate-level activities that place students front and center. Activities focus on some of the main characteristics of the student-centered approach such as task and inquiry based learning, student choice, presentation of content in multiple ways, re-using content, and collaborative learning.
