The Center for Advancing Teaching and Learning through Research looks forward to working with co-op faculty and coordinators as they take on the revisions to the co-op program. As part of this process, during the fall 2013 semester the Center for Advancing Teaching and Learning through Research will be facilitating a series of Co-Op Inquiry Groups. Going forward after this fall, we will also offer workshops to facilitate the implementation of these revisions.
The Readings and Activities Inquiry Groups will work together to (1) identify selections from Carol Dweck’s Mindset and Ellen Langer’s The Power of Mindful Learning that would be a good fit for the course, as well as potential articles on intrinsic and extrinsic motivation; and (2) begin the development of a repertoire of teaching and learning activities that incorporate the readings and lead to the specified outcomes.
Participants are welcome to attend some of all of the inquiry group meetings. The full schedule is available here.
