This event is sponsored by USC Connect and the Center for Teaching Excellence.
In this session, you'll learn to help your students connect their real-world experiences to the big ideas they've studied in class, through strategies such as guided reflections, "unpacking" sessions, concept maps and e-portfolios. We'll use examples from a variety of disciplines, and you'll benefit from learning what's worked for other instructors. We'll also explore barriers to using integrative learning approaches and potential solutions. Resources for ideas and ongoing support will be shared.
