Learn strategies for bringing active learning opportunities to your entire campus.
Many institutions create a few “showcase” active learning spaces rather than incorporating active learning elements throughout all classrooms on campus. Learn how to pursue a scalable model for creating active learning spaces across your campus. This training will focus on how you can:
- Improve your physical space with active learning components
- Gain buy-in from faculty for a pedagogy shift
- Save time and money to create spaces that enhance student learning
This training will feature examples from the University of Florida to help you see the concepts discussed.
