Enhancing Undergraduate Experiences and Disciplinary Persistence
Join Dr. David Hanauer as he presents a lecture on project ownership – the degree to which students feel personally engaged with the work they are conducting within an educational setting, a relatively new but increasingly important variable within the context of STEM education.
This lecture will explore current developments in the pedagogy of authentic research instruction and the characteristics and role of project ownership in enhancing student educational and personal experiences.
Following the lecture, Dr Hanauer will lead a workshop for faculty to initiate a discussion of ways in which project ownership can be incorporated within existing undergraduate courses at MacEwan University. The workshop will have a brief introduction to the pedagogical aspects of project ownership followed by faculty group work to consider different ways and types of projects that could be used to enhance student experiences and persistence in existing courses taught by faculty.
MacEwan Faculty and staff are encouraged to attend what is sure to be an exciting and informative day!
Refreshments will be provided.
