Proposal Abstract

Students will often recognize, if only in retrospect, when they’ve been provoked to deep learning, or lit by an inspiring class. Supplemental Learning (SL) leaders are strong students, from a range of disciplines, who have learned—as a part of their SL training—how to focus upon and to foster learning; they’ve learned about learning. This heightened metacognitive awareness places them in an ideal position to articulate what, precisely, has provoked and inspired them as students. Participants will hear from a panel of TRU’s SL Leaders who will describe the teaching moments that have rocked them, and the junctures where they’ve found inspiration. You’ll get a student-eye view of our best teaching practices, and, we hope, come away inspired by what they share. Please note that this presentation is very similar, in intent and focus, of one made by a panel of leaders five years ago. It felt valuable then, and seemed worth bringing back, with a new generation of learners and leaders, to reframe in a 2020 context.

Statement

The panel will aim to reveal, through the student perspective, what fosters connection, engagement, and curiosity. Recapturing the high notes of their learning experiences should, we hope, illuminate and reflect our own practices back for us.
