Proposal Title

Moving to Learn in the College Classroom

Proposal Abstract

Besides being experts in their disciplines, exceptional educators actively search for ways to enhance student learning outcomes. Many educators embrace technology or student centered approaches to influence student learning. With a renewed interest in the links between physical activity and cognitive functioning, the proposed practice session will outline, discuss and demonstrate practical applications of movement in the classroom. Two instructors introduced movement in three different classes with the goal of enhancing the student learning experience. Each instructor assessed different elements of the movement innovation. Either the impact on student learning based on quiz or test scores, student perceptions of learning, and/or student motivation on the learning outcomes or goals of the class or activity was examined. Results from the assessments of student learning will be discussed. It is expected that participants in the session will participate in sample activities while brainstorming and developing activities for use in their classrooms.
