ED Talk November 10, 2021: “Developing Student Agency with Problem-Based Learning”

submitted by greenj@augsburg.edu

Jacqui deVries, professor of history, and recipient of the 2021-2022 Distinguished Contribution in Teaching Award, will explore the concept of high-impact, integrative learning strategies aimed at developing student agency, and will share examples of their application in a project-based history course that works with external clients to develop local history walking tours.

CTL offers Ed Talks (based on the concept of TED Talks) before each faculty meeting from 3:10-3:30pm over Zoom (link provided below; Augsburg login required). This year’s theme is “The Future of the Professoriate at Augsburg”, and 2021-2022 Ed talks will be framed under this broad theme that speaks to our “new normal” and beyond.
