Reading Comprehension Modules

14 online professional development modules were created to provide reading comprehension strategies to college-level faculty who are teaching entry-level college courses across disciplines. The modules were designed to maximize interaction, provide “take-aways” for participants, and encourage college faculty to practice using metacognitive strategies to create an internal dialogue regarding their concerns with teaching reading comprehension strategies before they teach them.

Project Based Learning is a teaching approach that inspires students to obtain a deeper knowledge of the subjects they are studying—with real world application. As John Dewey so famously pointed out, "Education is not preparation for life; education is life itself." AT staff can help you think about how PBL and technology can work in tandem in your classes to achieve student success.
