Most college teachers enter their classrooms with thousands of hours of experience in their chosen field and typically face students who have little to no experience with that field of study.

In this setting, teachers may take for granted all that they know and are able to do. In a sense, they expect students to get inside their head. This has been called expert blind spot—experts have a difficult time seeing or meeting the needs of relative novices which can be challenging in teaching.

This Magna Online Seminar discusses ways to overcome this expert blind spot by addressing how to harness the power of examples, case studies, visualizations, and stories to help students meaningfully engage with your subject. You’ll learn how to recognize practical ways you can put Blooms taxonomy to work in your teaching. Learn effective principles and practices regarding the packaging and delivery of course content in digestible, interesting, and motivating ways to both help students begin their own journey of discovery and ultimately accelerate student learning.
