Active Learning Strategies Aligning with the Interests of our Students
Thursday, March 17
3:30 to 5:00 p.m.
Park Library, Strosacker Room
For this TLC workshop, Dr. Francek will focus on relevance. Once we know our students’ interests – Hollywood film, music, sports, food, travel – we can use these tools as “hooks” to capture their attention. Once we have students’ attention, we keep them engaged with active learning techniques such as think pair share, reflection on demonstrations, 70-30 exams (70% solo, 30% group), getting them out of their seats to kinesthetically act out class concepts, backyard field trips, and fun, formative assessment techniques.
