A new way to look at content in the classroom

The infinite amount of information available at any time on portable devices places a unique burden on educators: too much to teach. More specifically, teachers struggle with what should be covered in a course. New material emerging in the field? Older content from previous courses that students have not absorbed yet? Some combination?

Prioritizing content and deciding on the coverage requirements for a course can lead to some painful decisions. Whether it's trimming content from your existing syllabus or squeezing in more, the task can be daunting for educators and students alike.

One strategy for managing this dilemma involves taking a fresh look at the teaching and learning of information. For an illuminating take on this approach, order Taming the Monster: Rethinking the Role of Content, an online seminar from Magna Publications.

Leading this 60-minute discussion is Nicki Monahan, a faculty advisor in staff and organizational development at Toronto, Canada-based George Brown College.
