Event Description

Research shows that millennial college students prefer to learn in classroom environments that are hands-on, discussion based, technology enriched, and active in nature. It’s a dramatically different approach than what we, as students, probably experienced. In this workshop, you’ll examine the benefits of using active learning strategies as opposed to traditional teaching methods. You’ll identify a wide range of active learning strategies and examples of how these strategies might be incorporated into your classes. You’ll also explore a wide range of traditional and digital formative assessment tools that might be used in the classroom. A stipend is available for eligible participants. Registration is required.

If you will need special accommodations, please contact the event organizer.
