Active Teaching Lab: Active Learning vs. Gimmicks

Friday, December 14, 2018 @ 8:30 am - 9:45 am


Scroll down to register! If students equate active learning to busywork, we’re doing it wrong! When can best intentions for active learning turn into a superfluous misuse of time? How can we ensure active learning is truly engaging and meaningful? We examine active teaching practices and reflect on how the array of tools for active learning are best employed to promote meaningful learning.

Walk-ins welcome but registration appreciated to ensure refreshments for all. Bring your laptop or mobile device for hands-on experimentation. Have opinions or experience on the topic? Sign up as a contributor.

The Active Teaching Lab is a Faculty Engagement program with sessions held on Thursdays from 1:00-2:00pm (room 302) and Fridays from 8:30-9:45am (room 120) in the Middleton Building (1305 Linden Dr.) during fall 2018. Check out upcoming Labs or read the recaps from past Labs. We build interdisciplinary conversations that are more emergent than a presenter and more dynamic than a panel — a conversation with colleagues sharing challenges, solutions, and experiments on topics selected by a variety of stakeholders.

Sign up for regular Lab announcements by sending an email to join-activeteaching@lists.wisc.edu.
