Looking for some new ways to engage your students? Wondering what else is out there beyond the tried and true “think-pair-share” activity?
Research overwhelmingly supports the idea that active learning, “opportunities for students to meaningfully talk and listen, write, read, and reflect on the content, ideas, issues, and concerns of an academic subject” leads to greater learning gains than methods of teaching that situate students as passive receptors of knowledge (Meyer & Jones, 1993). And as such, over the last twenty years, many faculty have begun the process of adapting their teaching methods to provide students with active learning opportunities.
In this workshop, participants will have the opportunity to discuss and refine active learning methods that they rely on currently in their teaching and to brainstorm new ways of engaging student learners.
Registration for this workshop will open two weeks prior to the date of the workshop.
