The topic will be "how can I get them to learn what I want them to learn". In the education jargon, this is known as "learning styles". Faculty are good at learning; and likely good at learning in a variety of settings and in a variety of ways, but often students have not developed these same skills. This will talk about different ways students learn and how to effectively incorporate a variety of methods in your teaching that are likely to reach more learners without burning yourself out.
