    Chapters 5 and 6
    This is part 3 of a 4 part online learning workshop for ACC faculty. Feel free to join us for as many sessions as you can, but recognize that this series is designed so that you don't have to attend every session.

    Computerside Chats are the ACC book club for faculty where you DON'T HAVE TO READ THE BOOK! Chats for Spring 2016 will focus on the book "Teaching for Learning: 101 Intentionally Designed Educational Activities to Put Students on the Path to Success" by Claire Howell Major, Michael S. Harris, and Todd Zakrajsek. In each session, you'll be introduced to material from two chapters of the book, along with a few of the teaching tips the authors suggest. You'll then have time to engage in an online conversation with your teaching colleagues about how ACC instructors might adopt some of these new methods in their classrooms. You'll be able to get the latest evidence-based teaching without having to dig in to the research on your own.

    This session will focus on Chapters 5 and 6. Chapter 5 examines "Reading Strategies" and offers faculty suggestions for engaging students as effective readers. If your students come to class unprepared, the tips in this chapter are for you! You'll get ideas for how to improve the way your students prepare for class. Chapter 6 covers "Writing to Learn" and gives options for techniques that will have students practicing their writing communication. If you've been struggling to incorporate this important competency in your classes, or if you just want to be inspired to develop new activities, you'll get some great ideas from this chapter.

    You will need access to a computer for this event. On the day of the event, you will be sent information in an email about how to join the webex meeting. You do NOT need to have a webcam or any other special equipment.
