This presentation first discusses the challenges of today’s diverse classrooms (all levels) and the need for/benefits of multimodal teaching and learning. It then looks at various types of multimodal activities and assessments that enhance student engagement and academic success. Instructors are challenged to step out of their comfort zone and try new ways of delivering content and assessing students in order to assist them to successfully meet the learning outcomes of a course. Participants will be asked to participate in a few activities that require them to use multiple intelligences and brainstorm the use of multimodal strategies in their teaching, including presenting students with authentic, collaborative, problem-based activities and assessments.
