How to Engage Your Students’ Minds Without Losing Yours


Faculty are so busy with didactic, lab, clinical, meetings, research, curriculum changes and their own personal lives that integrating active learning within a class seems like an insurmountable task. Don’t fret! There is hope! During our time together, we will discover how active learning differs from passive learning and just how easy it is to incorporate active learning into your courses – one class at a time. Additionally, we will show you how to start with one course objective and create an active learning experience your class will enjoy. By making small, integrative changes, you will soon have an interactive classroom that your students will love! The best part? Students will remember what you did together not just for the exam, but for the long term.
