Regional Session (Americas) – Learning from Students

Session Description
Much has been written on student-centered pedagogy. By rethinking instructional strategies to better meet a diverse audience, instructors and designers are more likely to lean toward universal design for learning and create more engaging experiences for learners overall. However, there is also an element of relationship necessary to implement student-centered practices; that is, the instructor must be open to a two-way dialog about learning and student needs.

Having taught online for 18 years, Dr. Manning has encountered many kinds of students. In this presentation, Susan will share the five archetypes who have shaped her teaching practice and improved pedagogy and design.
