Workshop on Class Time Reconsidered: Active Learning in the University Classroom

Class Time Reconsidered:

Active Learning in the University Classroom

 

Workshop Description

How can we make the most of the relatively limited time we have with our students during class?  Educational research is clear: engaging students in active learning in the classroom leads to improved learning outcomes over "continuous exposition by the teacher."  But what is active learning?  Why does it work?  And how can we build it meaningfully into our class sessions?  In this seminar, we'll explore teaching strategies, learning principles, and digital technologies for creative active learning environments in our classroom—and engaging our students in deeper learning.
