Active and Problem-Based Learning Workshops (Teaching Tip)

Whether you are a seasoned instructor or new to teaching, join education expert and engineering professor, Dr. Michael Prince of Bucknell University, as he leads participants through two hands-on sessions.
“Active Learning for Busy Skeptics” is designed to introduce quick and simple active learning techniques that are effective, require little preparation or class time, and generate little or no student resistance. This event will take place from 8-11 a.m., 4204 Student Innovation Center.
“A Practical Introduction to Problem-Based Learning” offers a practical introduction to problem-based learning or PBL. This program will take place from 1-4 p.m., also in 4202 Student Innovation Center.
“Dr. Prince is known for shaking up traditional classrooms,” Shan Jian, assistant professor of Materials Science and Engineering said. “His workshops have helped numerous faculty members go out and become more effective in the classroom.”
These workshops are jointly sponsored by the College of Engineering and CELT. Invitation to Dr. Prince was made by Dr. Jiang. Both workshops will take place on April 15.
