Instructional Strategies


It has been awhile, I am back to write about my current PIDP course called 3250: Instructional Strategies. In this course we will be delving into the different ways to engage and motivate students to participate and learn. There is a significant portion of 3250 that is self directed learning and sharing ideas through an online forum. Here are a few of the interesting ideas and links that have been presented thus far:

– The new concept of heutagogy, which I interpret as taking andragogy a step further as the ultimate self directed learning:

– Active learning teaching techniques and tips:

– Flipped classroom, the state of teaching now:

– Learning style inventory, take the test to figure out what type of learner you are:

 – Learning styles as a myth:

– John Hattie’s maximizing the dividend of professional learning:

– Internet learning tool called Socrative that can be incorporated into lesson plans for immediate evaluation:

– Textbook reference for 3250: Barkley, E.F. (2010). Student engagement techniques: A handbook for college faculty. San Francisco, CA: Jossey-Bass.
