CETL’s popular Active Learning Workshop, normally a two-day program, will be offered this winter in a one day, action packed 7-hour session. Faculty interested in this workshop must be able to attend the entire full day session from 9 AM to 4 PM. This includes a 1-hour lunch.
Active learning strategies foster highly interactive classroom sessions featuring small groups of students working collaboratively while deemphasizing classroom lecture. Thinking about teaching a hybrid or flipped course? Learn how to maximize your face-to-face sessions with active learning.
The full day workshop, held in one of the new T-FLeC-spaces, offers participants the experience of actively learning about active learning in these newly designed and innovative classroom environments.
Workshop topics include:
- Opportunities afforded by active learning classrooms
- Tips for successful active learning activity planning
- An introduction to a myriad of small student group activities
- High and low-tech active learning tools
Many of these activities are easily implemented in almost any classroom (high- or low-tech). Faculty need not have extensive knowledge or experience using educational technology or active learning to apply. Participants should have basic experience using technology in a standard TEC classroom at Cal State LA (PC and projector or doc cam).
We will be using technology in the second half of the session, therefore BYOD: Bring Your Own Device (e.g. laptop, tablet, iPad & charger).
Upon successful completion of this FULL day workshop, participants will receive priority consideration for scheduling courses in one of the new T-FLeC-spaces at Cal State LA.
There are a limited number of seats in this workshop. Participants must be able to attend the FULL day workshop.
