We were pleased to welcome CERRA’s Dr. Michael Fleming as our February professional development speaker. Michael presented on Brain-Based Learning strategies and how to incorporate them into classroom instruction. Many fellows reported that the presentation would certainly apply to their content areas and instructional philosophies and were eager to begin exploring ways to incorporate certain strategies into their respective curricula. Thank you Michael for an engaging experience!
The USC Teaching Fellows are currently incorporating the 7 Habits accountability system into our Mentor/Mentee model. To date several fellows report that they enjoy the weekly “check ins” and daily reminders of individual strategy tips to work on. We hope to be able to continue using this model in the future with ever increasing efficiency to foster more interaction between members of the cohort and to promote professional growth.
