 Active learning, active teaching: Reasonable methods for improving instruction that are grounded in cognitive science 


Tuesday, February 10, 2015


University of Washington, FOEGE AUDITORIUM (S060)

This special 2-hour session will focus on the active learning strategies that can be done in large-enrollment classes. It will be presented by invited speaker Ben Wiggins of the Biology Education Research Group.

          Participants will be able to:

1) Identify instructional moments within existing class organizational structures that are relatively passive (and therefore good candidates for replacement with active learning techniques)


2) Design flexible and basic active learning strategies to use in identified activating moments.


3) Efficiently and verbally frame in-class student tasks in a structure that is more motivation-based than logistic-based.


4) Draft useful learning goals that will guide creation of well-aligned examinations.
