“Relevance: Connecting Courses
to Students’ Lives”


Isis Artze-Vega, Valencia College

Many talk about “relevance” as a key strategy to make a course more equitable, but what does it really mean? After giving a brief overview of the research on learning and motivation, Isis Artze-Vega (Valencia College) will discuss how to balance relevance and rigor, particularly when thinking about course outcomes and learning objectives. Then, participants will be invited to put the skills into practice by marking up their own course syllabus and brainstorming specific ways they can make their teaching more relevant.
