Make it stick: active learning techniques for programming and instruction

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
Join us for a presentation and discussion about active learning and how it increases information retention by moving from passive to engaged learning. A number of successful techniques will be shared, including examples of problem-based learning, live online polling, and presentation formats that get people up and moving for a hands on approach to learning. We will also demonstrate digital tools for engagement and offer practical suggestions on how to incorporate active learning into different settings and group sizes. Whether you are planning a program for a professional organization or providing instruction in an academic classroom, you will leave with a better understanding of active learning theory, a list of applicable tools, and examples of assessed active learning techniques and exercises.

Hello! I'm the business librarian at Elon University. I've spent 22 years learning how students become information literate, what makes them curious to learn more, and how to use in-class hands-on exercises to stimulate interest in accomplishing better research.
