Fostering Active Learning and Engagement In-person
In online classes, many of us found value in engaging with students and in asking them to engage actively with course materials during synchronous meetings. In this session, faculty will consider ways to continue that active learning in their in-person classes. For instance: how might we deploy student groups in a lecture room, instead of in a Zoom breakout? might we still make use of recorded lectures when we can all be in person? what other strategies for student interaction can being together in the same room make possible? How can we use class time to best help students to learn by thinking with and through course practices and materials?
