All Skate: Active Learning in the University Classroom

Posted by on Thursday, August 4, 2022 in News.

Workshop Date: Monday, August 22nd
Time: 1:00 – 2:30pm
Location: Center for Teaching classroom (1114 19th Avenue South, 3rd floor)

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 engage all of our students in active learning during class?  In this session, we’ll explore teaching strategies, learning principles, and digital technologies for creating active learning environments in our classrooms—and inviting all our students into deeper learning.
