Integrating Active Learning

During this workshop we will explore different active learning elements in a hands-on and immersive fashion and how to best integrate them into our classes. We will consider different levels of course re-conceptualization, role adjustment, and implementation and discuss task design, learning assessment, and integration into the syllabus. We will also consider student resistance to a different learning environment – how to anticipate, detect, and manage it. Participants will leave with ideas and designs for active learning course components adapted to their respective core courses. 

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

Lunch will be provided at 12:30pm and refreshments will be available in the afternoon. If you have any specific dietary needs, please do let us know.
