Classroom Research on Active Learning in Large Classes

Friday, April 3, 2020, 12-1:30pm

Active learning can take many forms, with some approaches more effective than others.  Learn about how faculty are trying different approaches in their large classes and see how they are turning classroom innovations into research.  In this meeting, we'll explore case studies of activities faculty have tried in their large lecture courses, drawn from peer-reviewed publications.  As a group, we'll unpack some components that make active learning effective and look at the ways faculty have measured the level of success of their efforts.

As always, lunch will be served so please sign up to join the conversations by sending an email to Please let us know of any food restrictions & accessibility issues.
