Topics for Next Meeting (Oct. 2nd)

As we discussed in Friday's meeting, rather than having a book club leader we are all going to bring questions related to the chapters we're reading in Doyle's book. So... for our next meeting (Oct. 2nd from 3-4:30 in the CTL) we're going to bring questions related to Chapters 2-4.

We also discussed the need to apply this information in some way. John Shaw felt that he needed to "see" learner-centered practice in action. As a first step toward applying these ideas, the group decided that we will all bring a topic from our own courses/discipline to which we might find it difficult to apply learner-centered principles.

This would be a great place to start the discussion regarding difficult topics!

  1. This sounds like a good plan. I especially like focusing on areas in which applying the learner-centered principles may be difficult. Also, I would like to hear about some situations in which colleagues have applied them successfully and how they know their approaches were successful.

  2. It seems to be an efficient approach. Learner-centered principles definitely need additional attention. It was great to read about different example how teachers helped to revel student`s talents and showed their personal way to success. It is extremely important in our Digital World when learners can easily get essays paper help online instead of asking additional questions and trying to get important skills. So it is evident that we need new approaches and together it is possible to make necessary conclusions. I believe that everyone appreciate such opportunity.
