High Risk, Big Rewards: Changing Classroom Expectations
Sponsored by the USU STEM Center. The event will be presented workshop style. Our goal is to encourage a wide ranging discussion about traditional approaches to classroom environments, and to imagine different strategies and methods for "shaking things up." To seed discussion we're asking people to read two short articles before the workshop. I've attached PDF captures of the articles, but you can also read them on the web here: The Importance of Undisciplined Thinking (http://chronicle.com/article/The-Importance-of/134032/). Thoreau's Cellphone Experiment (http://chronicle.com/article/Thoreaus-Cellphone-Experiment/125962/).
