Connecting teaching strategies to learning outcomes is a challenge that higher education faculty face on a daily basis. Ever wonder how and when to use particular teaching techniques or feel the need to revitalize your course/session designs? In this session participants explore active learning/teaching techniques, examining their advantages and sharing ideas for how to implement them to enhance student learning. By the end of the session, participants will have co- imagined strategies for redesigning the way they teach at least one challenging concept or topic in their courses and will have expanded their repertoire of strategies to promote students’
active engagement in learning.
By the end of the workshop session participants will have:
*Articulated their interest in the session and identified at least one challenging concept or topic they teach *Sorted instructional techniques into key categories *Considered at least 4-5 different instructional techniques in depth *Discussed how and when to most effectively utilize each technique to promote active engagement in learning *Identified selected techniques to address their articulated challenge that they might use to facilitate learning.
