Participation in this workshop will provide an opportunity for junior faculty to learn about research on the effectiveness of active learning, as well as to discuss how to structure a class to integrate active learning with other methods, such as lecture. Topics will include strategies for incorporating methods such as group work, discussions, and problem-solving, and as well as implementation techniques that can increase the effectiveness of these methods in improving student learning and engagement.
Open to untenured, tenure-track faculty, The Teaching Center’s Junior-Faculty Workshops offer opportunities to learn about evidence-based teaching in discussion with colleagues from across the disciplines.
Presenter: Gina Frey, Ph.D., Florence Moog Professor of STEM Education, Chemistry; Executive Director of the Teaching Center; Co-Director of the Center for Integrative Research on Cognition, Learning, and Education (CIRCLE).
