Have you experienced a perplexing puzzle in a course you teach regularly? Students struggle with one particular concept, no matter what you try. Or there’s a bi-modal performance; some students excel, others remain confused until the end of the term. Whatever your conundrum, investigating what is actually causing it can help you to find novel solutions for the next time you teach the course.

In this session we’ll explore ‘sleuthing options’ for figuring out what’s really going on, ways to develop evidence for your hypotheses, and options for documenting your practice in portfolio form so that your efforts to address the situation don’t disappear in the mists of time before you teach the course again.

A studio is a meeting of 5-7 faculty in a room where everyone commits to learning and sharing their most puzzling questions. Session is 2 hours in length. During the session participants will share their perplexing questions related student performance in their own classes, pose questions to deepen collective understanding, and offer investigation options for all to draw from.
