Engaged Learning

This workshop focuses on best practices for integrating engaged learning into the overall course structure , on linking engaged learning to the theories and models covered in a course, and on enhancing critical thinking and long-run engagement by students. Based on examples, we will consider successful approaches, including assignment and in-class activities, and work on implementing them in the courses of the participants. The workshop offers the opportunity to consider different forms of engaged learning, to discuss our courses with colleagues, and to be inspired by their experiences and suggestions. Participants will leave with several developed class activities and ideas for more.

Participation in this workshop is limited to registered participants only. All registered participants are required to attend the entire workshop.

Breakfast will be available at 8:30am. Lunch will be provided at the end of the workshop. If you have any specific dietary needs, please do let us know.
