UCITE Session for Thursday, Jan. 25: All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten: Transfers for Teaching.
More than 30 years ago, author Robert Fulghum suggested that most of what he really needed to know about how to live and what to do and how to be he learned in Kindergarten. Comedian and television personality Ellen DeGeneres concludes her daily talk show by encouraging her viewers to “Be kind to each other.” How much of this colloquial advice might apply to university learning environments?
Join UCITE Interim Director Matthew Garrett to discuss how core values of the art and science of teaching relate to the ideas found in Fulghum’s text, All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten. Discussion topics will range from creating a positive and constructive learning environment to effective instructional strategies for both large and small classroom settings.
This event will be on Thursday, January 25 from 11:30 - 12:30 p.m. in the Herrick Room, which is on the ground floor of the Allen building (at the corner of Adelbert and Euclid). Pizza lunch and sodas will be provided at this session.
