  1. Teaching Seminar/

February 1, 2023

Some notes / links from this week’s teaching seminar

John’s recommendations:

Rob’s recommendation: remember extrinsic rewards/motivation doesn’t motivate students to learn. We need to think about how to build intrinsic motivation.

Aubrey’s recommendation: the “ERIC” method of positive motivation towards mistakes

  • Expect mistakes
  • Respect mistakes
  • Inspect mistakes
  • Correct mistakes

Daniel’s website is full of great information and delightful comic illustrations ( including the “ERIC” approach)

We’re going to be meeting in the seminar room at 11am every Tuesday and 2pm on Wednesdays. Come by and say hello and let’s chat about teaching!
