Research shows that active learning improves student outcomes and promotes student learning (Freeman, et. al., 2014; Hake, 1998; Prince, 2004; Ruiz Primo, et. al., 2011), and many faculty across the nation have begun making their courses more active. Facilitated by Dr. Heather Olson-Beal from the Department of Secondary Ed. & Educational Leadership, this five-part series is designed to help faculty in any discipline implement active learning strategies. Topics covered will include defining, planning for, implementing, and assessing active learning.

  • January 31
