Title: What I’ve learned from ‘building thinking classrooms’
Social norms determine how students act in the classroom and these behaviours do not always contribute to student learning and engagement. Based on over ten years of research focused on identifying ways to improve learning and motivation in mathematics classrooms, Dr. Peter Liljedahl has developed a framework for ‘building thinking classrooms’. It provides practical approaches for promoting a culture of critical thinking and meaningful engagement with course content. Over the past four years, I have adopted these approaches in my own teaching. I have also collaborated extensively with Dr. Liljedahl, attending many workshops and visiting a variety of school environments where this framework has been implemented. In this session, I will reveal a few of the things I’ve learned from these experiences.
