TA and PostDoc Series: Active Learning: Why and How to Incorporate Active Learning into Your Classroom

  1. Thursday, October 2nd, 20143:30pm - 4:45pm

All of the recent research into learning and how learning occurs, points to the effectiveness and necessity of actively engaging students in the classroom. It is not enough for instructors to ‘show and tell’ information, answers, processes, etc.; students have to engage with the material and come up with their own interpretations, answers, steps and understandings. In this workshop we’ll learn some basic techniques to promote active learning in the classroom.
