Nov. 6, 2017 Workshop for Adjunct Professors—Active Learning in the Classroom

On Monday, Nov. 6, 2017 CRC offered another free professional development workshop targeted at adjunct and part-time professors at all of our institutions. See the details below.

SUBJECT: How to Get Students Actively Engaged in Learning, Even if You Have 200 of Them

Extensive research has shown that people learn best by doing things and reflecting on what they have done, not by watching and listening to someone else telling them what they are supposed to know. While a good lecture can instruct and motivate students, if lecturing is the only thing that happens in a class, much less learning takes place than would occur if more active teaching methods were mixed in. This interactive workshop describes and illustrates how instructors can get their students fully engaged without losing control of the class, even if the class is large.
