Integrating Active Learning into Lectures to Maximize Learning

May 22, 2018 - 12:00pm to 1:30pm
HARTLEY CONFERENCE CENTER, MITCHELL EARTH SCIENCES

What can we learn about the role of active learning in undergraduate science education from cognitive, education, and neural sciences research? How can instructors move from lecture-only teaching modes towards purposefully integrating active learning opportunities for students?  Join Dr. Kimberly Tanner, neuroscientist and biology education researcher, in this interactive session where you will explore research on why active learning in undergraduate classrooms is key, as well as experience multiple, specific examples of how to integrate active learning into existing biology lecture sessions.

NOTE: This workshop is co-sponsored by the Vice Provost for Teaching and Learning and the Office of Postdoctoral Affairs and is open to all Stanford graduate students, postdoctoral scholars, faculty, and staff.
