As teachers, we sometimes tell our students to stop doodling and pay attention. And yet now, research is telling us that doodling may be exactly what our students need to be doing! This two-unit course will introduce you to the many benefits of teaching your students ways that they can use sketching to improve their understanding and retain important information in the classroom. (No artistic skills required!) Your students will learn how to become better listeners in class and more efficient note-takers. And, the things you learn in this course can help you to get more out of meetings and lectures as well!
