Educational Developers’ Cookbook

This is a collection of practical ideas offered for use by the educational development community. Based on the notion of a cook book put together by a community we offer Starters (ice breakers), Main Courses (ideas for workshops and events) and Desserts (ways to obtain feedback or evaluation).

Feel free to make use of the recipes and do share your own ideas. Send these to Celia Popovic (cpopovic@yorku.ca). Please use this template – recipe-template

If you try out an idea consider letting us know how it went in the comments box under each recipe.

Happy ‘cooking’!

Starters | Activities (such as icebreakers) that can be used to begin a lesson or activity

Main Courses | Active learning strategies that can be used throughout a lesson or activity to encourage critical thinking and participant engagement

Desserts | Activities and assessment strategies to conclude a lesson or activity and/or check for participant understanding
