Departmental Colloquium

The definition of active learning depends on who you ask.  The approaches are widely varying with different levels of student success. Today’s presentation will be a discussion of what constitutes active learning.  To help illustrate the concept, activities will be presented that are used in the presenter's classroom. It is hoped that attendees will leave with a better understanding of how active learning can be implemented in their own classrooms.
