Notre Dame Alumni Association Excellence in Teaching Conference 2013
Friday, October 25 to Sunday, October 27
The Notre Dame Alumni Association invites K-12 educators for a weekend of personal reflection and professional renewal at the University of Notre Dame in South Bend, Indiana. This is a wonderful opportunity for personal and professional renewal and to gain new skills to maximize student learning.
This award-winning conference is open to all teachers and administrators
from public, Catholic, and private schools nationwide, not just Notre
Dame alumni. It provides the right combination of practical application
From news websites to blogs and from Facebook to Twitter, the pressure for students’ attention and the resources available for learning have never been more diverse or complex. Every day, teachers across the country have to bridge the gap between the traditional building blocks of learning and the high-speed content of new media. In this conference, education expert Ann Anzalone will discuss how to reach today’s learners, from the importance of movement to making sure they know how to find an answer when Google is not available. Anzalone will explain how the brain learns and how you can empower your students to achieve in the digital age. Session topics will include: learner engagement , attention, memory, and study skills and developing higher order thinking skills
