Session B5

2nd Annual Conference on Teaching and Learning at CNM

Come to Do the Cup Song and Learn about Learning

Fang Chen, SAGE; Kenneth Ives, SAGE

Laguna, 12:30-1:45


In this session, I will share a highly interactive and engaging activity I use in my CSE classes to make students reflect on the topic of learning. Using a pop song, participants will be challenged to learn an act related to the song within a limited time frame and will be evaluated on their learning outcome—to be able to perform the act. This process symbolizes the task of learning in college. Afterwards, participants will reflect on lessons learned from the challenge. This activity is designed to help students discover what makes learning successful. Besides CSE classes, this activity can be used at the beginning of a semester as a warm-up for any other subject.
