00288 Motivating the Gifted but Reluctant Learner
Tuesday, February 3, 2015
4:00PM - 5:00PM 
uci.webex.com

Not all gifted learners are productive students. Some gifted students establish a perplexing pattern of doing well or doing nothing. Some are reluctant, even resistant, learners refusing to play the school game. This session explores well-documented research on underlying causes of low performance and creates distinctions between non-producers, selective producers and underachievers amongst the gifted populations. Participants are guided through a process for diagnosing specific performance issues.

This session will show teachers how elevating the thinking demands on students directly aligns with an increase in complexity of academic language. Participants will learn how to promote high-level thinking through discussions and, in turn, identify the academic language required to participate fully in class. A focus on understanding academic language concretely will guide participants to see the thinking and language connection.

00653 Visual Themes for eLearning and Slides
Thursday, February 12, 2015
11:00AM - 12:00PM 
uci.webex.com

Get ready for creative inspiration. Be prepared to expand your horizons. Please join UC Irvine Extension in welcoming Connie Malamed (a.k.a. The eLearning Coach) to explore the components of visual design and how to use these elements to create exciting visual themes or styles. We'll look at visual design trends, break down a number of different styles, and discuss the characteristics of each. Then, we'll analyze the underlying message that the style communicates. The visual theme you select should meet the needs of your audience, your content, and your instructional and messaging goals. Whether you create the graphics yourself, work with a graphic designer, or manage a team, it pays to have a visual style as your framework. You don't need any graphic skills to gain new insights and to benefit from this session. This webinar will include pre-registration advisement for individuals interested in UC Irvine Extension's fully online E-Learning Instructional Design Certificate Program.
