Active Learning in the Classroom: Session Three

February 28, 2017 @ 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm

Session III: Think/Pair/Share and Opinion Polls

UW-Madison’s Educational Innovation is focused on enabling pervasive active learning to improve the student experience on campus. DoIT Academic Technology presents the Active Learning in the Classroom series to support these efforts. 

The series will provide instructors approaches that can: 

  • Be implemented easily into courses without extensive course redesign;
  • Encourage active dialogue between instructors and students; 
  • Help instructors ascertain comprehension of course content with the goal of identifying gaps and misconceptions early; and
  • Facilitate deeper, higher-level learning for students.

The Active Learning in the Classroom series, developed by the Faculty Engagement program, will focus on six pedagogical, active learning approaches that instructors can quickly implement in their classroom when the opportunity arises. The content presented in this series is taken from the book Classroom Assessment Techniques: A Handbook for College Teachers, by Thomas Angelo and K. Patricia Cross.
