Classroom Design: Not Just a Seating Arrangement
Natural versus fluorescent lighting; neutral versus vibrant colours; desks versus varied levels of seating; fresh versus circulated air. Over the past two years I have completed my Masters of Educational Studies through the University of Alberta, where I did my research assignment on classroom design at the middle years level. Through the literature, interviews, and my own experiences I found four elements of the physical environment affect students: lighting, ventilation, aesthetics, and furniture. Lighting in the classroom includes natural sources such as windows and skylights, lamps, and overhead lighting.  Ventilation refers to the physical temperature and air movement within classrooms.  Aesthetics deals with the general atmosphere of the classroom, including colours, and furniture is more than just a place to sit and work. This session will explore my personal journey through classroom design, moving beyond seating arrangements, and will offer educators simple solutions to creating engaging learning environments for students in the middle years.

Whiteboarding in the Science Classroom
Whiteboarding can be defined by some as an effective classroom strategy that uses dry-erase boards to actively engage students in the learning process. This strategy provides students with ongoing evaluation and quick feedback that guides understanding and comprehension of subject matter. It also allows students to engage in a collaborative learning process with their peers enabling them to learn from each other and provides the teacher with another formative assessment tool to use in their classroom. This session will introduce you to multiple methods on how you can use whiteboarding with your science students.
