What is Active Learning? How do you implement it? What are activies that support it? How can you become an Active Learning practitioner in a short period of time?
Broadly defined, active learning requires "students to construct knowledge, integrate knew knowledge with prior knowledge, and organize information in their memory," as Amedee Martella, a cognitive scientist, describes it in a recent article for The Chronicle of Education.
But what does that look like in the classroom? (If you have students do pair or group work, then you're probably already doing it.) And does it require a complete course re-design? (The majority of time, no; minor shifts can be enough.)
The Center for Teaching Excellence and Innovation and the Teaching Academy invite you to a Lunch and Learn session on Active Learning on Tuesday, March 12 from 12 - 1:30 pm. Hear from experienced faculty about how they use active learning approaches in their classrooms and walk away with activities that you can implement during your next course session.
- When: Tuesday, March 12, 12 - 1:30 pm
- Where: A hybrid event: The Garrett Room in the MSE Library and Zoom
- Will there be food? Of course! For in-person attendees.
