The Thrill of Teaching and Learning in an Active Learning Classroom

Tuesday, November 28 | 12:10PM–12:55PM ET
Session Type: Virtual
In this interactive session, we'll explore some lessons I've learned from teaching a large (175 student) biology course in an active learning classroom for ten years. I then will share the critical, but usually unspeakable factor needed for optimal student learning, in any environment. Finally, we'll imagine walking into an average college STEM classroom in ten years. What will it look like? What do we need to make that happen? Learning Objectives: * Consider some principles for effective use of active learning spaces * Examine strategies for helping instructors find their "teaching legs" in these spaces * Imagine the future of college classrooms
