Engaging Pedagogy Exchange: Harness Bracketing and the Cognitive Cycle: Explore Transformative Learning Theory
November 8, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Wednesday November 8, 2023
12 p.m.-1 p.m.
Topic: Harness Bracketing and the Cognitive Cycle: Explore Transformative Learning Theory
Speaker: Michele Hill
Transformative Learning Theory integrates an individual’s past frames of reference and provides insight into the adult learners’ mindset. In this session, we will explore the use of the Bracketing exercise to identify assumptions regarding the content, which can serve as a valuable tool for instructors to gauge students’ attitudes towards challenging courses, including those that are less enjoyable. Additionally, utilizing the Cognitive Cycle activity fosters a transformative environment that shifts perspective, supports classroom mental well-being, and cultivates student success.
Engaging Pedagogy Exchange (EPX) — formally known as Research-Based Teaching Series (RBTS) — seeks to support the work of faculty from all disciplines, colleges, and campuses by offering faculty presentations and workshops on best practices in teaching and learning. These workshops not only provide information and resources for faculty seeking to enhance their own pedagogical practices, but also give faculty an opportunity to present their work to peers. All sessions will be live on Zoom and video-recorded for archival purposes.
