Let’s focus on student learning! At the end of a long semester, students tend to have trouble remembering all that they learned in a particular course, especially if they are taking five or six courses in one semester. In this interactive session, we will discuss strategies instructors can employ in their classes to help students fill the gaps and promote students’ self-reflection. We will look at different activities instructors could use to help students connect the key knowledge and/or skills that they have learned in your course throughout the semester. In addition, we will discuss how instructors could create space and time in the last class to celebrate students’ accomplishments and growth ending the semester on a high note.
