Goals and Objectives of this Course:
KnowHow participants will engage in active learning sessions designed to facilitate reflection, foster connection, and enhance teaching practices.
KnowHow participants will gather tools, templates, and models that they can customize and incorporate into their instruction.
KnowHow participants will capture instructional content through an interactive exploration and inquiry in a field-based learning activity.
