This Friday June 4th, join a conversation with Kristin Patterson & Brandon Campitelli about "Making Thinking Visible: Teaching routines as windows into student thinking."  One goal in STEM education is to develop students’ ability to apply their thinking skills to solving complex problems. In order to help students develop their thinking skills, we have to first understand what thinking is and then incorporate opportunities to practice thinking into our classes. If classes are organized so that students’ thinking is explicit, then instructors can give feedback and students can reflect on their progress. In this session, participants will work collaboratively to define thinking, share ideas for how to make thinking visible, and choose activities to implement in your classes.
Sit down with other engaged colleagues on Zoom. Based on research by the Summer Institutes, supports are three times more important than barriers in implementing Scientific Teaching in classrooms. Join us for support with the National Institute on Scientific Teaching, formerly the Summer Institutes (Bathgate et al., 2019a, 2019b).
