Abstract for Conference Program (150 words max)

During this session, participants will practice hands-on, low-risk, high-engagement teaching strategies which encourage students to develop and utilize quick, creative decision making strategies while utilizing key concepts from the interpretive formula. Participants will develop and deliver an interpretive program using an original artifact. In groups, participants will practice brainstorming, information gathering, quick decision-making, creativity, and communication. When implemented in the classroom, this strategy provides students with constructive feedback that can be applied toward future interpretive projects or other information gathering projects. Application strategies for adapting this activity to discipline specific learning objectives will also be discussed.
