Session B14

2nd Annual Conference on Teaching and Learning at CNM

From Zombie to Exhilarated: Transforming Your Classroom Through Active Learning

Ann Wolf, SAGE

San Juan, 12:30-1:45


In many classes students are not engaged or motivated to learn; this in turn does not allow students to be as successful as the instructor hoped. Research informs us that students need to be motivated and involved in their own learning in order to retain the information that is important to passing a course. In this presentation I will define active learning and explore how engaging students through project-based activities can transform the classroom and help students master course content. The activities share in this presentation can be used as icebreakers, breaks in a lecture format, and formative assessments. Participants will have a chance to experience a variety of active learning activities.
