A growing body of research (e.g. Freeman et al. 2014, Prince 2004) shows that active learning has a positive impact on student learning, especially for students from underrepresented groups. Active learning can be broadly defined as student engagement and participation in the learning process. It can include various types of in-class activities, assessment, and reflection. During this webinar, we will model active learning while providing an overview of the current research on active learning and share examples of active learning techniques and strategies that can work for a variety of courses with a range of enrollment sizes, classroom setups, and student demographics. We will also discuss our own methods for implementing active learning and how these methods foster success for all students.
By the end of this webinar, participants will:
- have active learning strategies that they can implement in their classroom
- be able to describe the research indicating that active learning in the classroom supports the success of all students
- be able to explain why active learning strategies are supportive of underrepresented populations
