Deep learning is linked to student’s interactions with the content, other
students and the teacher. Facilitation is a set of skills and dispositions
teachers employ when seeking to foster deep and interactive learning. In
this hands-on practical workshop participants will engage, and practice 4
facilitation skills, and discuss their associated dispositions, that underpin
deep and interactive learning:
1. Cultivating an Epistemic Adventure of Inquiry;
2. Inspiring Revelatory Questions;
3. Understanding the Mind and Heart with Empathic Listening;
4. Generating an Abundance of Loopy Feedback.
- Describe the characteristics of deep and interactive learning
- Create activities that invoke an Epistemic Adventure of Inquiry
- Construct Revelatory Questions
- Demonstrate Empathic Listening skill mindfully and provide meaningful feedback
- Practice giving and promoting feedback that enhances learning
