Promote effective techniques for lifelong learning.
Pedagogical Techniques for Lifelong Learning Inside and Outside the Classroom
Lifelong learning is especially important in rapidly changing fields like computer science. However, when providing technical instruction, showing participants how to teach themselves is a critical skill that is often overlooked.
Our goal in this workshop is to practice a structure that instills habits for lifelong learning by writing journals, completing small projects and teaching others.
The motivation to learn starts from within, and we believe the best way to personalize that motivation is to have participants keep a journal of their goals and lessons. Next, we will work on designing exercises that build confidence in completing small projects and building useful tools. Finally, we will rehearse techniques for teaching each other.
This workshop is intended for computer science instructors teaching in high school, university or continuing education. Exercises will be in Python using Jupyter Notebook with the open source CrossCompute extensions.
The ability to teach oneself is a skill that can be taught but is often overlooked in computer science courses.
