Scholarship to Practice 6/24/20 - Chantal Levesque-Bristol

Bridget Burns, Executive Director of the University Innovation Alliance, and Derrick Tillman-Kelly, Director of UIA's Fellows Program and Network Engagement, speak with Dr. Chantal Levesque-Bristol, Executive Director of the Center for Instructional Excellence at Purdue University. She enlightened us about her research on student-centered learning, what it really is versus what it's commonly perceived to be, and how it can be used to include marginalized or minoritized student populations in the learning outcomes they deserve. Topics include:

  • Self-determination theory and its motivational building blocks
  • The role of autonomy in student-centered learning
  • Why changing instructional practice begins with a shift of instructor mindset
  • The differences between student-centered learning and active learning
  • How focusing on human motivation is an investment in people
