Active learning is an approach that emphasizes student engagement with course materials during class rather than solely listening to lectures. While active learning techniques have been shown to significantly enrich students’ educational experience, active learning does not have to be a replacement for lectures. In fact, using a mixed methods approach that incorporates both lecture and active learning can be a powerful tool for increasing student engagement.

In this workshop, we explore how blending lectures with active learning strategies can create a more dynamic and effective learning experience. Drawing upon the science of learning, we will explore various methods and strategies to help you find a balance between lecture and active learning that feels right for your teaching context.

By the end of this workshop you will:

  • Learn what active learning is and why it’s beneficial in teaching.

  • Gain insights into the benefits of combining lectures with active learning

  • Discover ways to blend lectures with active learning methods.

This session will run for 30 minutes, with an additional 15 minutes reserved for questions. This session will be held via Zoom. Please register to get the Zoom link.
