Structuring Opportunities for Active Learning During Lectures
Tuesday, September 15th, 2015
11:30 AM - 1:00 PM
Seigle 208, Danforth campus
Many studies have shown that students who participate in active-learning activities during class are more engaged in the material and retain more information than students who passively listen and take notes. Participants in this advanced-level workshop will learn strategies for transforming lectures by integrating active-learning such as group work, clickers, and problem solving.
This is a foundational workshop for the WU-CIRTL program.
Presenters: Jacinta Mutambuki, Ph.D., STEM Education Postdoctoral Research Associate and Denise Leonard, Ph.D., Assistant Director
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.
Workshop registration will open on Tuesday September 1st.
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.
