Register for Project LEA/RN workshop in January

Project LEA/RN will host an in-person workshop Jan. 10-11, 2023 (9 a.m.-4 p.m. daily, 3022 Agronomy) that trains educators to help their students learn the kind of thinking required to solve complex problems. Faculty, staff and graduate students are welcome. Participants will share insights about the brain based on current research, engage in strategies that promote interaction and deep thinking, and apply them to situations in which they facilitate learning -- classes, orientation sessions, extension meetings or other learning situations. This workshop will not directly address the technology involved with remote and online learning. Enrollment is limited to 20. To register or for more information, contact Project LEA/RN director Jan Wiersema, agronomy, (712) 221-1203.
