Creating Significant Deep Learning Experiences
The Cross Papers, Number 14, Creating Significant Deep Learning Experiences, was launched at the League’s Innovations conference in San Diego, California, on Sunday, February 27, 2011. Beth A. M. Dailey, recipient of The Cross Papers Fellowship 2010-2011, presented her work during a Special Session at the conference. In the monograph, Dailey challenges faculty to incorporate more activities and opportunities for deep learning in the student experience. She presents a practical framework for creating significant deep learning experiences, drawn from learning theory and research, and shares dozens of techniques for engaging students in these learning experiences.
The Cross Papers series was launched in
1997 as a resource for community college faculty, with the first seven monographs written by K. Patricia Cross. When Pat Cross retired from writing The Cross Papers, she generously created The Cross Papers Fellowship to continue this work. The monographs fuse theory,
research, and practice on effective teaching and learning, contribute to
ongoing conversations about learning, and offer tips and techniques for
enhancing and improving teaching and learning. Creating Significant Deep Learning Experiences is available from
the League Store or through iStream. The deadline for submitting proposals for The Cross Papers Fellowship 2011-2012 is April 30, 2011.
