About the Lunch and Learn: Designing and Teaching Using ‘Chunked’ Learning

You’re invited to join SOCHE for another virtual lunch and learn, entitled “Designing and Teaching Using ‘Chunked’ Learning,” on Wednesday, Jan. 19, beginning at 12 p.m. The session will be presented by Dr. Alice “Betsy” Grimes, Director of Faculty Development, and Tammy Bugher, M.Ed., Director of Instructional Systems, from the Air Force Institute of Technology (AFIT).

Research has shown that traditional learning environments (where teacher assists learners with memorization/recitation techniques) and methodologies are not well-suited to all learners for developing their critical thinking, problem-solving, or decision-making skills. Additionally, retention and application of content can be improved through modifications in how instruction is planned, designed, and delivered.

This presentation ties current learning theory and cognitive science in support of chunked learning with implementation. Chunked learning design strategies facilitate a competency-based, tailored instruction designed for the level of knowledge and learning style of the learner. It enables the delivery of content that is effective, efficient, and relevant, which is consistent with the expectations of a continuum of learning.

Invaluable for educators at all levels, this presentation will describe the concept of designing and teaching via the chunk method and the research and theoretical underpinnings that support this instructional strategy. If you’re an educator, you won’t want to miss this session, so click here to register now!

More Professional Development Opportunities

Councils & Committees

SOCHE is dedicated to advancing higher education through active collaboration, resource and knowledge building, and effective professional development programs. To accomplish this, SOCHE administers 16 active Councils and Committees. The purpose of a SOCHE Council or Committee is to provide an opportunity for representatives from higher education to be a resource for one another, share information and best practices, identify common challenges, and, ultimately, broaden awareness of the resources, services, and activities in higher education. SOCHE is also dependent upon the Councils and Committees for substantial input on annual professional development programs.
