Webinar - Liberating Structures: Tools for Classroom Student Engagement
- Date: Thursday, September 26th, 2019
- Time: 11:00am - 12:00pm
- Location: Webinar
Student engagement as an issue headlines higher education, cited as a driver of retention and overall student success. Stakeholders challenge educational institutions to innovate practices and programs to create new levels of this magical phenomenon to respond to changes in how students learn and indeed, how the “real world” now operates. However, the need for student engagement reaches far beyond classroom walls. As students enter the workforce, they must be equipped to include and engage others. Liberating Structures is a new way to approach engagement in classrooms, meeting rooms, and other places people gather.
Drawing from literature from power, leadership, and pattern language, Liberating Structures includes thirty-three tools that can be tailored and combined to support different purposes of human interaction and engagement. In this webinar, you will discover new techniques for creating microstructures (or the way routine interactions are organized) in the classroom.
