November 18th, 2-4pm - Active Learning Strategies to Engage STEM Students During Lecture
Active learning techniques can have a profound positive impact on student learning. However, it can be challenging to integrate active learning into courses where much of the material is typically delivered via lecture. This is especially common in STEM courses, where a large amount of complex information has to be transmitted from instructors to students (and in very limited time!).  Register to attend this workshop here.
