TE09- Awakening Our Students’ Passions for Learning
Melissa Nivala, Dion Gouws and Edwin Bliss
This institute is designed to support the Academic Statement goals and advance long-term curricular stability through a high-impact pedagogical practice that effectively empowers and truly motivates every student and in doing so builds a strong, motivated, united learning community. It introduces very useful ChangeMaker Lab tools that are used for this purpose, such as the Learning Contract, Dialogue, Value Propositions and discovering a common ‘Why’. Our objective is to share an excellent methodology with faculty and staff to enable them to help students find their passion and learn how to tailor their learning to speak to that passion.
