Concepts! Concepts! Concepts! They’re everywhere! Our textbooks are full of them. Lectures explain them. Tests measure how well students understand them. But what is a concept? How do we know our students are deeply learning a concept? How can we teach for conceptual understanding in a specific field or discipline? This CAETL session explores the challenges, issues and pleasures associated with teaching for conceptual understanding.
Please join us. The session promises to be informative, supportive and challenging.
