Student Engagement Seminar Series – Active Learning Strategies
Teri Horton, Carla Stellrecht
Friday, February 21, 2020
Hatcher Graduate Library
Keeping students engaged in the course content and motivated to learn can be challenging. Integrating specific active learning strategies into class can challenge higher order thinking and create experiences in which students can apply what they have learned. The key is to find an activity that helps students achieve their learning outcomes. For example, do you need an activity to activate prior knowledge, apply a concept, challenge critical thinking, or simply delve into course content? This seminar will help instructors think more deliberately about when, why, and how to use active learning.
This seminar is part of the Student Engagement Series & Panel Discussion. The series includes evidence-based learning activities and strategies to prepare students for learning, engage in meaningful discussions and group work, and capture attention with complementary activities during lectures. Instructors and staff who are looking for specific and practical ways to increase engagement or simply freshen up a course are welcome to attend. Refreshments will be served.
