How are schools changing? How are our students going to be different in the next 3 to 5 years?
There are changes going on in Common ED where teachers are looking to focus on 21st Century skills – Communication, Collaboration, Creativity and Critical Thinking.
In our current teaching, how are we touching upon these topics? One of the discussion points is that students are not ready to do this yet, but what if they came to us better prepared to engage in these activities.
In the Faculty learning community Book Study, we will be reading Most Likely to Succeed – A book about how students are being prepared for college and life differently.
We will be meeting on Mondays in the Faculty Conference room of the Peggy Helmerich Faculty Learning Space BLLL121E
On Mondays October 10, 17, 24, 31 and Nov 7th if needed.
We will be reading the book in an electronic format either Kindle or iBook so that you will be reading in the way that most of our students read, using a device.
