LLE: Looking Back on a Year of Change: What Might the Most Important Next Steps be in Teaching and Learning in Higher Education?
February 10 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Co-hosted with the Institute for Studies in Transdisciplinary Engineering Education & Practice
With the many changes required by the pandemic, students have had to make major adjustments to their learning approaches. Many are understandably reporting high stress in the current situation. In this session, I will describe a Growth & Goals Module that can help students become more effective in their learning approaches, with the potential for reduced stress and for students to become more adaptable in future learning contexts (e.g., careers).
Alison Flynn is an Associate Professor in the Department of Chemistry and Biomolecular Sciences at the University of Ottawa. She is a 3M National Teaching Fellow, Canada’s highest recognition for excellence in education at the post-secondary level and a member of the Global Young Academy. Her work includes developing online learning tools as Open Education Resources to support student learning, including OrgChem101 and a Growth & Goals Module. Her research group studies student learning in organic chemistry and the impacts of the Growth & Goals module. At the provincial level, she is a Director on eCampusOntario’s Board; this organization brings together the province’s universities and colleges to foster technology-enabled innovation, research, and excellence on behalf of and in collaboration with students. At the National level, she is the Canadian Society for Chemistry’s Director of Accreditation and the inaugural associate editor for chemistry education research with the Canadian Journal of Chemistry.
