CeTEAL: Save the Lecture! Using Pauses During Lecture to Engage Students Bookmark and Share

Jan 8

11 a.m. @ KRNS 210

Are you looking for a way to reinvigorate your lectures that doesn’t involve redesigning your entire course? This session will help you incorporate quick, simple-to-use activities which can be immediately applied in the classroom. Pauses during lecture can be used to get attention, focus/refocus, generate curiosity, build on prior knowledge, scaffold, connect to a topic, connect to other students, review, relieve cognitive load, retrieve information, review, reflect, celebrate accomplishments, and bookend learning.

Participants will:
• Discuss the cognitive science support the use of pauses in the beginning, middle and end-of-class
• Participate in several pause activities
• Reflect on which pause activities are most applicable to their classroom
