In this session, we will model active learning and introduce participants to various evidence-based instructional methods and activities—from enhancing your lecture to using case studies and classroom discussion. We will review the common issues and challenges faculty encounter with using active learning techniques in the classroom. We will explore activities designed to increase student engagement and motivation. Evaluating the instructional methods relevant to your teaching style self-assessment will provide strategies to take away and use in the classroom.
Getting feedback from students is an effective way to include diverse student voices, be proactive, improve end-of-course evaluations, and document teaching effectiveness and improvement.
