Our annual Teaching and Learning Conference for all Lethbridge College faculty and staff occurs on May 3, 2018. This year’s conference, The Nature of Teaching & Learning: Take a Walk on the Wild Side, will provide employees the opportunity to explore nature concepts and their relationship to teaching and learning. This years themes include adaptation, cooperation, resiliency, and communication. Register to come and join us for a day of fun - we look forward to seeing you there!
Keynote: Trevor Ragan
Our keynote speaker, Trevor Ragan, an entrepreneur, creative developer, researcher, and lecturer on growth mindset offers the keys people of all ages need to succeed in the workplace, the classroom, and at home. With a foundation in motor learning, performance science, and psychology, Trevor Ragan’s keynote presentation, Train Ugly, provides us with information to help us acquire skills, appreciate obstacles, embrace pressure, work hard, and continually learn. At the end of the conference, you will walk away with skills and strategies that you can use in the workplace and at home.
TLC - Teaching, Learning & Caring
The Refresh committee is freshening up PreFresh! Teaching, Learning & Caring (TLC) will take place in the month of May, replacing PreFresh. TLC's provide departments with an opportunity to show colleagues what they do. This is show and tell time!
Departments are invited to host a session during a Tuesday or Thursday lunch hour (12:00pm-12:50pm). While these sessions do not have to follow a particular theme, feel free to align them with the Refresh 2018 theme - The Nature of Teaching & Learning: Take a Walk on the Wild Side. Your session could be a tour, a game, a demonstration, a scavenger hunt, or any kind of activity that will engage your participants.
If you, and your department, are interested in hosting a session, please fill out the application form or, better yet, submit a video with the support of the CTLI Production Team! If you need assistance with your video, please contact Kiri Stolz. The deadline for applications is Friday, April 2nd, 2018. Please contact Chelsea Nutini (ext 5745), if you have any further questions.
"I am on an adventure to challenge and question everything that we know about sports, education and development.
Through this journey I’ve worked with talented individuals from all over the world. These experiences helped me to discover some incredibly important research in the fields of motor learning, performance science, and psychology that should have totally changed the way we train and develop students, athletes, and people in general – but they have not.
It’s my mission to change that."
