Here in La Crosse, people come together to work for the common good.
At UWL, we live out the Wisconsin idea of public service and community engagement. We are proud to work with our many partners in La Crosse, giving back every day to a community that generously supports our teaching, learning and service mission.
What students already know--or do not know--greatly affects how they will learn in our classes. While insufficient or inaccurate prior knowledge is always a challenge for learners, the pandemic has arguably made it more common for students to come into our classes without the advantage of prior learning. This session will highlight strategies faculty can use to activate prior knowledge and support students who do not have it, while reinforcing and integrating prior content in helpful ways. In addition, we will discuss ways to debunk durable misconceptions about our subjects.
