Learning is built on connecting new understandings to prior knowledge and engages students in deep and meaningful thinking and feeling. In this presentation we will explore ways of challenging students to think deeply about concepts and ideas, whilst offering the appropriate level of difficulty.
The seminar will include a presentation on Critical Thinking by Deb Brown, followed by a panel discussion facilitated by Jason Lodge covering topics such as:
- Encouraging students to generate multiple and varying ideas and proposals to solving problems, and then critically explore their respective advantages and disadvantages to test, refine, and re-apply
- Ensuring learning content and activities have sufficient complexity and that students have sufficient ‘learning room’ to experiment, take risks, collaborate, and self-reflect
- Appraising that students have sufficient prior knowledge to engage in the kinds of learning activities and outcomes expected
