We all know that the best ideas come from fellow teacher-scholars, and hearing what's working for someone else can be invaluable! That's why we are hosting our first Idea Swap for Linguistics Teachers.

This is not your typical webinar. Instead, it's an exchange! When registering, please be prepared to submit a short paragraph on a specific teaching method, engagement activity or discussion prompt that you feel has worked well to advance student learning in your linguistics classroom. This can be an active learning assignment, an alternative grading method, a creative use of A.I., a way of teaching a specific concept in linguistics, or something else that is working well for you.

Even if you are a student or are new to teaching, you have spent considerable time in the linguistics classroom and are encouraged to share something you found particularly engaging from the student perspective. Everyone has something to contribute and something to learn.

In this hour-long webinar, we will use breakout rooms with facilitators to discuss the ideas each has submitted and ask questions. Breakout rooms will be organized thematically.

At the end, the ideas will be compiled, grouped thematically, and shared back out with all webinar participants so that you can start the new academic year with a brand new set of go-to linguistics teaching ideas. This is one webinar you won't want to miss!
