How can you set your institution apart in today’s competitive higher education market? By creating transformative learning experiences for your students—ones that will boost your public profile, increase learning outcomes, improve retention, and build a culture of academic integrity.

Drawing on the long-term and ongoing study of the most effective teachers and teaching practices in higher education, Drs. Eric Mazur (Harvard), Mindy Maris (NIH, Johns Hopkins), and Ken Bain (Best Teachers Institute) will explore the fundamentals that guide highly successful courses — on campus, online, or anywhere.

During this interactive webinar, presenters will share their research-based best practices to address fundamental institutional goals and outcomes and keep students more deeply engaged in their learning, including:

  • What it means to learn, from a student perspective
  • New ways to foster powerful learning experiences for all types of learners
  • Effective approaches to teaching & learning — in-person and online

You’ll also hear about a series of Saturday morning webinars beginning in January 2021, culminating in a three-day Summer Institute Workshop in June 2021. As part of this program, participants will build “Super Courses” based on the Natural Critical Learning Environment model (Super Courses: The Future of Teaching and Learning, Princeton University Press, 2021).
