Structuring Opportunities for Active Learning During Lectures
Wednesday, September 17th, 2014
11:30 AM - 1:00 PM
Many studies have shown that students who participate in active-learning activities during class are more engaged in the material and retain more than students who are passively listening and taking notes. Participants in this advanced-level workshop will learn strategies for transforming lectures by integrating active-learning techniques such as group work, clickers, and problem solving.

This workshop is open to Washington University graduate students beyond their first year and postdoctoral appointees in STEM, and is part of the STEM Pedagogies series.
Registration for this workshop is now closed.
Participating in advanced-level workshops for graduate students does not satisfy departmental requirements to attend introductory-level Teaching Center workshops. The departmental requirements are satisfied by participation in TA-Training workshops.
