Upcoming Live Online Seminar: Taming the Monster: Rethinking the Role of Content

Checkout and attend this event.

Whether it’s new material emerging in the field or content from previous courses that students have yet to master, teachers struggle with what should be covered in a course. Cutting, trimming, and wedging more content into an already jam-packed syllabus leads to agonizing decisions and unrealistic expectations. Perhaps it’s time to rethink the role of content in teaching and learning.

This seminar will teach you innovative ways to think about the content that is critical for your students to learn and remember. You'll explore the mission of content in the classroom and how to use it to provide high-quality instruction. 

Join Nicki Monahan, M.Ed.Tuesday, November 10, 2015 | 01:00PM Central | Length: 40 Minutes  for Taming the Monster: Rethinking the Role of Content, a live, interactive discussion that reexamines the role of content in learning and how to manage it for a richer classroom experience.

Register today and you'll be able to:

  • Identify the underlying problems created by the "content coverage" model of teaching
  • Answer critical questions about content problems
  • Analyze the role of content in learning from new perspectives
  • Implement strategies for effectively using content to enhance student learning
When we shift our focus from covering content to using content, curriculum design becomes less a matter of determining “what” to teach and more a matter of “how” to facilitate learning.
Register for Taming the Monster: Rethinking the Role of Content and find new ways to think about and manage the content in your courses.
