Series Description

This multimedia resource for community college faculty will challenge your previous thinking about teaching and learning and give you the basic tools for effective classroom practice. The key theme of the course is to encourage you to focus on what the students will do and take responsibility for their success. Teachers know their content and they know how to explain. These are valuable skills. But teachers have to become experts at tapping into their students' knowledge base and how they learn. Series release date: 2006

Program Description

Module 4: The traditional venue for learning has always been the classroom. While the classroom may be a great place to learn theory, it's not always the best place to learn workplace skills and the knowledge necessary for a career in science and technology. In this session, you'll learn many ways to incorporate community and industry resources into your course: guest speakers, site visits, internships, and other potential student activities. Intended Outcome for This Module: As a result of this learning experience, you should be able to create learning opportunities that integrate industry and community resources and better prepare students for jobs in the workplace.
