How can we create deeper learning experiences, acquire skills and cover complex topics by using objects? In this session, you will experience the power of Object Based Teaching and Learning (OBTL). By trying it yourself, you will learn how to deeply engage students with the information you want to convey through detailed observation of and multi-sensory interaction with objects. We reflect on the many applications of OBTL and cover some concrete tools to get started. OBTL is suitable for all disciplines and programs.
