LINC Pre-Conference Workshop 3: Active Learning- From Principles to Practice

 

Date and Time: Monday, June 17th

Afternoon Workshop, 1:30 p.m. - 5:30 p.m.

 

Workshop Description

Hosted by Dr. Glenda Stump

Have you tried to incorporate active learning into your teaching, but wondered about its real impact on students’ learning outcomes? What elements make ‘active learning’ active, and how do students react to this way of learning?

This workshop will review the idea of active learning over the past few decades, and then describe Chi’s ICAP Framework as an evidence-based approach to planning active learning activities for students and understanding their outcomes. Active learning is regularly discussed as a change in pedagogy for the instructor, but the paradigm shift it requires for students is often neglected. A critical piece of implementing active learning in the classroom is navigating students’ transition from passive receivers of knowledge to active producers of knowledge.
