“Active Learning is “”anything that involves students in doing things and thinking about the things they are doing”” (Bonwell & Eison, 1991, p. 2).

Implementing active learning techniques into your classroom can deliver great results in increasing student engagement and motivation. This also involves minimal investment of your time!

Join us for a fun and engaging workshop where you will have the opportunity to:

  • Reflect on and discuss how you use active learning techniques in supporting student learning
  • Consider impact of active learning techniques on student learning and experiences in diverse contexts
  • Discuss key considerations for successfully implementing active learning techniques
