Topics of the 2017 January Workshops
REGISTRATION CLOSED: January 5: Incorporating Attention to Documentation/Citation in Writing Assignments
REGISTRATION CLOSED: January 9: Active Learning in Technology Enhanced Active Learning (TEAL) Classrooms
Engaging students in active learning experiences in their courses promotes student engagement and fosters learning. There are many forms that active learning can take in virtually all fields and disciplines. These approaches include team-based learning, collaborative learning, project-based learning, game-based learning, cooperative learning, simulations, and many others. The development of technology enabled active learning (TEAL) spaces has brought new and expanded opportunities for teachers to engage students in active learning experiences, with the goal of fostering deep learning and critical thinking. First, Patrick Hayden (from Instructional Design and Development) and Christopher Way (from Audio Visual Services), will discuss how students benefit from active learning, introduce the TEAL approach, describe the new Hamilton-Smith TEAL Classrooms, and explore opportunities and challenges in teaching in a TEAL Classroom. Next, three faculty (Dawn Meredith, Pascal Orliac, and Stephen Trzaskoma) will describe examples of how technology can promote active learning and they will engage the workshop attendees in a discussion of how they might incorporate active learning approaches in their courses. Finally, the workshop will include time for participants to ask questions and seek advice from workshop leaders.
Note: Participants should bring, if possible, a laptop computer to the workshop.
