Taught by Bonnie Faye Gibson-Brydon
Workshop Synopsis: Look at how much information is being distributed and shared. My question is HOW MUCH IS RETAINED?? I recently monitored a “cognitive challenge”! For me it was an amazing learning experience. From the Deaf Instructor admistering the test, to the Author that created the curriculum, and to the students who themselves were asked to articulate the ‘learned information’ – the results were hilarious! And that experience brough me and the instructor closer, both teaching completely differently now – because throwing information at you does not mean you learn, much less listen.
