Description

Are you struggling to keep your students engaged? Are your students having a hard time paying attention in class after months of remote learning? Are you trying to figure out how to use your class time more effectively given that some of your lecture material is recorded and does not have to be presented in class?

Active learning strategies can be effective ways to address all of the above issues and more. In this webinar, you are introduced to Active Learning strategies, how they are implemented in the classroom and some of the evidence on their effectiveness. You also hear how MIT transformed introductory physics courses to increase attendance and learning gains through several active learning strategies, and how these strategies are constantly tweaked to improve the learner and teaching team experience and engagement. 

Please note: The transcript for this session will be published shortly.
