Event Description

“Active learning doesn’t just happen; it occurs in the classroom when the teacher creates a learning environment that makes it more likely to occur”, Michael (2006).

Designing active learning requires an instructor to carefully consider intended learning outcomes, content, learners, context, and assessment methods. The availability of online learning technologies has made the design and incorporation of active learning in flipped and blended classrooms complex. In this workshop, we will guide the reflection, the discussion, and the design of appropriate active learning techniques that are best for the learners, for the courses, and for different learning environments. We would apply a basic model of an aligned curriculum to show you how to weave all the practices for effective active learning in various learning environments.

Facilitators: Hailan Chen, Namsook Jahng and Judy Chan
