Welcome

Thank you for joining us for the Technology-Enhanced Active Learning workshop!

Look around you… This session is held in an Active Learning Classroom (ALC). During today’s session, you’ll explore how technology can enhance active learning and help you provide a more engaging and student-centered experience. We’ll start by building a basic understanding of active learning and reviewing some useful active learning strategies. Then you’ll have the opportunity to investigate tools, apps and software and how their uses and features can support active learning in your classroom.

  1. Choose one or more tech tools to enhance an active learning strategy in a course.
  2. Make initial planning decisions about implementation of the tool(s).
