TILE Labs: Accelerator "Best Practices"

TILE Labs: Accelerator "Best Practices"

Event Date: 

Friday, February 14, 2014 - 1:30pm to 2:30pm


The TILE Labs program is excited to welcome Dr. Jane Russell, Curriculum Designer from Instructional Services. Dr. Russell is currently working on the Provost's Office Large Lecture Transformation project. The project seeks to transform traditional large enrollment, predominantly lecture based courses into a hybrid, student-centered model that is supported through technology. The project aims at increasing student engagement, satisfaction, and overall success. 

Dr. Russell will talk about her work with student motivation. Motivation matters because of its consequences. Motivated students engage in conceptual learning better than students who are not motivated. This talk will explore motivational strategies that can maintain or enhance students’ intrinsic motivation related to academic performance.

Individuals needing accommodations are encouraged to attend all TILE Labs programs. If you need any specific accommodations please contact tile@uiowa.edu
