Integrating Active Learning into Lectures to Maximize Learning Gains

Tuesday, May 17, 2016 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
Hartley Conference Center

Space is limited; please register here.

Lunch provided. 

What do research findings from cognitive, education, and neural sciences imply about the role of active learning in undergraduate science education? 
How can instructors move from lecture-only teaching modes towards purposefully integrating active learning opportunities for students?
 
Join Dr. Kimberly Tanner, trained as a 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. 
 
This workshop is co-sponsored by the Office of Postdoctoral Affairs (OPA), the Vice Provost of Graduate Education (VPGE), and the Vice Provost for Teaching and Learning (VPTL). Open to all Stanford graduate students, postdoctoral scholars, faculty, and staff.
