    Workshop facilitated by: Ben Wiggins (Education/Biology) (PDF flyer)

While the traditional passive teaching method is still widely used, research is rapidly demonstrating the benefits to learning, affect, and diversity that come from more active teaching styles. But teachers are left to decide: How can I make my class more active? In this workshop, we’ll present several research-based active learning styles. Your goal is to create a plan to replace your worst or most daunting teaching task with an active learning strategy that is most appropriate for your classroom, topic and students.
