Active Teaching Labs

Infused with learning science research, and connecting to the themes of the Wisconsin Experience, Active Teaching Labs provide a space to learn more about teaching tools and techniques, and to hear how UW-Madison instructors motivate, engage, and more effectively teach the diverse range of students we encounter. See below for upcoming Labs and recaps of past Active Teaching sessions or view the full calendar of Labs

Active Teaching Labs are an innovative and unique teaching development collaboration between the UW-Madison Teaching Academy and DoIT Academic Technology. Find out more about our other  partnerships that span the campus, state and nation.

Hope & Expectations for Labs

To help make each lab a success, we’ve developed hopes and expectations that cover the purpose of conversations, guidance on honoring voices, goals for provided resources, the role of theme experts, acknowledgement of real-world constraints, and advice for preparing for labs.

Our team facilitates the experimentation, pedagogical discussions, and highlighting of tools, but needs your experience and perspective.
