Interactive Lectures: Philosophy and Implementation
Thursday, October 16th, 2014
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
While many studies have shown that students who are actively involved in the learning process are more engaged in the material and retain more than students who are passive, developing an approach to making lectures more interactive can be a daunting prospect. This workshop for untenured, tenure-track professors will explore strategies for transforming lectures by integrating opportunities for active learning.
