It’s time we listened…really.
When you ‘Ask Them’ you might be surprised by, and benefit from, the answer.
In this humorous, fast-paced and broadly relevant keynote, we will start with the unmistakable reality that we are all different in our passions, skills and learning styles. Considering this reality, we need to make learning personal, meaningful and relevant, and essential to this goal is asking the student for input. In an era of Facebook and Trip Advisor, where feedback from the user is considered essential information, how often do we ask students for their opinion on grading, assessment, reporting or relationships? In ‘Ask Them’ Myron Dueck will argue that it is high time we ask students about their opinions and experiences as they relate to learning. By sharing the views of real students, and incorporating some of the tools used to gather evidence of learning, Myron will present the case that students have much to share concerning their understanding and it is time we listened very carefully.
