Active Teaching Lab Program Discussion
April 4, 2017 @ 11:15 am - 12:00 pm
John Martin from Faculty Engagement will share his experience developing and managing the Active Teaching Lab program at the UW System Learning Technology Development Council’s Virtual Showcase.
Entering its 3rd year, the Active Teaching Lab is a tested low-cost, low-overhead casual gathering for UW-Madison faculty to hear about, experience, and try out pedagogically-driven tools that other instructors use. Labs are held weekly during the academic year and include coffee and bagels. Each Active Teaching Lab is broken into four parts: 1) Listen: Hear colleagues share how they used a tool or technique in their teaching 2) Experiment: Get hands-on experience with the tool 3) Discuss: Unpack the pedagogy and develop ideas on applying it to your course 4) Expand: Discover additional options to accomplish similar results This session will illustrate the structure of each hour-long Active Teaching Lab, outline the topics and tools that have been explored using this format, and share the results of this model as it has been used at UW-Madison.
As with the over 25 other sessions — including presentations by other DoIT AT team members — you can view online for free if you register with UWS. All sessions will be recorded and posted to the conference webpage so you can watch later.
