Graduate Teaching Orientation: Getting Started with Active Learning

Sep 17 • 10:00 am - 11:00 am

“Active learning” refers to a wide range of teaching and learning practices that ask students to do something with course ideas, lectures, and materials. There are many ways to introduce active learning in your class–different techniques are effective for different purposes, can be used by individuals or groups, and require different levels of preparation. In this workshop, participants will experience and discuss examples of these techniques for easy implementation into their teaching contexts.

To make the most of this session, we strongly encourage you to explore Module 3, Getting Started with Active Learning, of our Graduate Teaching Orientation Canvas course beforehand. Module 3’s readings and reflections take about 45 minutes to complete, and you can bring your questions and ideas from the module to our virtual session. Ready to explore the modules now?

To self-enroll in the Canvas course, follow these simple steps:

1. Go to the “Graduate Teaching Orientation: CATLR 2021-22” self-paced workshop in Canvas.
