Workshop (led by Robin Wright)
Start Where You Are: Incorporating Scientific Teaching Approaches in Your Existing Lectures
Bring your favorite (or least favorite) lecture and consider what you might do other than just deliver the lecture next time you teach it. We’ll share some active learning strategies, then you’ll write a learning objective for your lecture and envision what you’ll ask the students to do to achieve that objective. Be prepared to share your ideas with other participants! Click here to access handout.
