We love working with faculty members to help uncover the most effective teaching methods for their particular goals. Please contact us to discuss workshop opportunities at your institution!

The following workshop formats can be customized based on the needs and goals of your particular institution.

Keynote talk – 60 min – A general overview of the need for multiple teaching methods and of seven different ways of learning in higher education. Handouts and small group discussions can provide some interactivity.

Half-day Overview/Workshop – approx 3 hours – Includes an overview of the 7 ways of learning framework followed by mini-sessions of at least four of the seven ways of learning. The focus and intensity of the mini-sessions can be predetermined ahead of time based on the needs of the group.

Half-day Overview/Customized Workshops – approx 3 hours – Includes an overview of the 7 ways of learning framework followed by in-depth workshops of two (predetermined) ways of learning. The most popular choices across disciplines are often: Acquiring Knowledge/Presentations, Inquiry/Discussions, Mental Models/Problem Solving, and Perspectives/Groups.

Full-day or longer workshops can be arranged based on the needs of the group or institution.

It was a pleasure to have Bridget Arend as a plenary speaker at LOEX, our annual conference for academic instruction librarians. She gave an engaging, clear talk about how to remain purposeful that connected with the needs of our attendees. There not only was relevant learning theory, but also practical, helpful content that our instructors could apply in the classroom.
