Brookfield #tli2012 Keynote: Becoming a Critically Reflective Teacher

    Newer Older

    Stephen Brookfield does not disappoint. We had him come to Brock University in 2004.
    My favourite reflection he had was that teaching online has given him a true appreciation of silence. Asynchronous activity gives the ability to pause and reflect and not be reactionary in response as a student. As an instructor the pause gives you permission to accept silence. He has transferrred this to his face to face classrooms with the Chalk Talk activity, a sort of physical backchannel, where he encourages students to get up out of their seat and write ideas, questions, concepts on the board and/or connect these between them and/or show disconnections or antithetical (!=) relationships.
