This seminar is a continuation of the discussion on the future of teaching and learning in the community college began last semester.
In the Fall semester, Steele presented us with best practices used in teaching about the future. In this seminar, the focus will be on the instructional skills needed by faculty for use in the classroom of the 21st century. Specifically, the seminar will focus on the types of skills needed and paradigm shifts that will take place in the future of teaching in the college classroom.
An overview of tools that can be applied to the problem of 21st century teaching will be presented and discussed. This will be followed by the building of models in teams. The seminar will culminate with faculty presentations of their thinking and models.
