The 4 Tenets for a Student-Centered Approach to Activity Design

Michael Mansfield


In order to design a student-centered activity that is engaging, practical, and lasting, an educator should strive to accomplish 4 goals in their lesson: (1) Have collaboration, (2) Work within the discipline, (3) Be authentic, and (4) Be iterative. This presentation will delve into how to simultaneously accomplish each of these four goals.
