Keynote Speaker – Kari Frisch

eLearning Coordinator and Communication Instructor at Central Lakes College in Brainerd, Minnesota

“Teaching to the first degree equals learning to the infinite!” Kari has been teaching for 18 years, helped develop a grass-roots online course peer review process, and led the Center for Teaching & Learning. Frisch sees educational connections in terms of relatable distances or “degrees” from one’s own place in the world. The further away a concept is from a student’s current experience/knowledge, the less personal it seems and the more steps (degrees) needed for that student to make the connection. Join Kari as we explore personalized approaches and inclusive teaching techniques to elevate the power of both the teaching and learning experience. Come gather methods, examples, and tools for this inspired model leaving you with your own first degree knowledge of how to generate “learning to the infinite.”
