Ever wonder how to incorporate evidence-based teaching strategies that support student learning and well-being? This workshop will provide the attendee with five best practices along with supporting recommendations. Utilizing active learning strategies, participants will develop an individualized plan of action to effectively promote student success in their “classroom.” This event will be facilitated by Christina Campbell.
Welcome back to campus! Spring Break has come and gone and now is a great opportunity to consider new ways to re-engage students after the break. I came across this resource on active learning strategies a number of years ago and have referred back to it many times. The CELT version of this resource is available for download via 226 Active Learning Techniques (PDF) link.
It has over 220 active learning ideas to choose from (which can be a little overwhelming), but the list is categorized by what action the instructor takes as well as the student actions. It further organizes the activities based on overall class size and by student group size (i.e. pairs or small groups). It’s worth a quick look to see if there is something you might want to try in your course over the next few weeks.
