You are invited to join us for CELT’s Active Learning Workshop on Tuesday, August 30 from 8:30am – 1:00pm. Light breakfast & lunch will be served.

Would you like to find ways to engage your students, and get them to participate in class and collaborate with one another? Even in large courses you can employ Active Learning strategies to increase your students’ motivation, improve their skills, and encourage them to be involved in higher order thinking. During this 4-hour morning workshop on Active Learning, you’ll work with your colleagues to plan backward to construct learning objectives, identify ways to support the objectives, and practice active learning strategies.
