Lunch & Learn with the 20-Minute Mentor (April)The 20-Minute Mentor video series offered by Magna Publications, are video-based programs designed to answer a specific question related to teaching and learning. They deliver actionable insights in highly focused 20-minute presentations designed to fit busy schedules.

The Academy is partnering with Harper faculty to showcase a few of these videos in our new Lunch & Learn series. Each 1-hour (0.1 CEU) session will provide an opportunity for attendees to watch one of the 20-minute videos as a group. Faculty leaders will then engage the group in discussion and brainstorming on how to apply what they saw in the video to their classrooms. Lunch will be provided at each session, so register early for one or more sessions and come hungry!

April’s Topic: What 5 Play-Based Activities Can I Use to Create an Active, Learning-Centered Class?
This informative program brings to life college classroom-tested games that work to build student rapport, inject new life into lecture-heavy teaching, and increase success rates among students. The video presenter is Dr. Susan Wehling, Professor of Spanish at Valdosta State University.

Our Harper faculty facilitator for April is Kevin Long, Speech and Theater. Come join Kevin and the Academy for a great discussion. A lunch of pizza and salad will be provided.
