Description

Learning Sticks When Students Work Together: Fundamentals of Active and Collaborative Learning

Why are you doing all the thinking for your students? As faculty, we so often teach by demonstrating our (expert) analysis and interpretation of the content. While such modeling is important, it should be integrating into instruction that promotes active and collaborative learning too, so students can learn for themselves. We will explore the research on active and collaborative learning and examine the new findings on the impact of classroom space on faculty instruction and student learning.

This interactive session will provide input opportunities for your thoughts and experiences, and together, we will develop a framework that will help us advance learner-centered instruction. We’ll focus on the interaction of faculty instruction, student prior experience, and the classroom space itself, thereby allowing us to highlight activities that are easy to apply in your context and encourage students to think and learn for themselves.

Light refreshments will be provided.
