A Day in an Active Learning Class
June 16, 2021 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Presenter: Colin Wallace (Dept. of Physics and Astronomy)
You know active learning is more effective (and fun!) than traditional lecture-only instruction. But how can you put multiple active learning strategies together to create a single, engaging 50-minute lesson? In this workshop, you will experience, from a students’ perspective, a day in an active learning class, followed by a discussion of how the lesson was constructed.
With the support of the College of Arts and Sciences and the Summer School, UNC’s Summer Institute on College Teaching is running a professional development workshop series this summer for any faculty, postdocs, and graduate students who are interested in learning about the best practices for bringing active learning to their classrooms. Participants in the workshop series will learn how to foster diverse and inclusive classrooms, optimally implement active learning techniques, assess their instruction, and design learning goals and effectively use class time to help students achieve those goals. Attendees of all 8 workshops will earn a certificate as an Education Fellow.
