Creating an Environment of Active Learning in the Classroom 

Description: Research into the effectiveness of educational methodology has increasingly suggested that students need to be "active" participants learning, so there is a strong emphasis in recent pedagogical training on "active learning." But what does "active learning" actually mean? And how do you create and implement effective active learning experiences in your classroom? In this workshop, we'll define the term, look at some reasons for making your classroom more active, and present concrete suggestions about how to do this well.
Learning Goals: Upon successful completion of this workshop, you will be able to:
  • Understand the reasons for incorporating active learning
  • Plan an active learning strategy for your class
  • Identify further resources for engaging students in the classroom.
