Active Learning in Remote Synchronous Classes: Integrating Effective Pedagogy and Technology

January 13 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm


Remote synchronous teaching and learning is here to stay, for at least one more semester. In this session, we’ll use a holistic view of active learning* to frame student engagement and promote deep learning. You’ll be asked to identify at least one goal for an upcoming class (e.g., solve a specific problem from Fall 2020, reimagine an approach to a topic students find challenging, discover new approaches for peer-to-peer learning). We’ll share strategies and tools for active learning in remote synchronous classes, providing you with opportunity to evaluate the best approaches to meet your goals. Additionally, there will be opportunities for you to share ideas from what worked in 2020.

*L. Dee Fink’s holistic view of active learning combines:

1. students working with information and ideas
2. students engaging in rich experiential learning activities
3. students practicing reflective dialogue with self and others

Facilitated by Laura Almstead, CTL Faculty Associate and Senior Lecturer; Allison Anacker, CTL Faculty Associate and Lecturer; and Jen Garrett-Ostermiller, CTL Faculty Development Specialist
