Bridging the Gap Poster

In over seven meetings during spring 2013, 35 City Tech faculty members across many disciplines explored and discussed the importance of prior knowledge, knowledge organization and feedback in order to promote a more effective teaching-learning environment.

This poster shows how participating faculty reflected on three of the seven learning principles and plan to apply them to their teaching practice. Based on the work published by Susan A. Ambrose et al., “How Learning Works,” learning can be defined as a process leading to change that occurs as a consequence  of experience, which ultimately results in improved performance and retention and the desire to keep learning.

I was one of the 37 participating faculty members, and I designed this poster with the input of a subgroup of the larger whole. We presented it in the 2013 City Tech Poster Session.
