You can create a dynamic, action-oriented, challenging, learning environment that fosters greater sense of ownership and personal investment in your students. This interactive workshop will introduce you a variety of effective ways to involve your large enrollment course in class discussions, post-reading activities, course content, and assessment of learning.  Finally, you will learn how to ensure that your course is increasing student awareness of their learning en route to achieving your most important course goals.

Technology Supported, Cognitively-based Active Learning Strategies that You Can Easily Incorporate into Your Curriculum

(Squamscott)

Presenters:

  • Catherine Overson, Director Teaching, Learning, and Research Services, CEITL
  • Victor Benassi, Director, CEITL

Presenters will describe four cognitively-based active learning strategies that promote learning and help students to achieve course objectives:

  • Flashcard
  • Retrieval practice – quizzing/clickers/embedded questions
  • Interleaving of presentation and practice
  • Self-explanation

Although many of these activities can be carried out using traditional methods (paper and pencil, notecards, class discussion, etc.) presenters will demonstrate how each of these activities can be executed through the use of technology for out-of-class learning activities in both your face-to-face and online courses.

Workshop attendees will work in groups to explore how they might design and plan for technology-supported activities for each of the strategies presented for a course that they will teach in the fall. Workshop facilitators will work with faculty to advise as needed.
