Feedback form is now closed.
This session is intended for TAs who would like to gain more knowledge and confidence about implementing a variety of active learning strategies in their tutorials. Using a “learning by doing” approach, session participants will engage in hands-on practice in exploration of what active learning is, what benefits it has, how TAs can use active learning strategies to increase student engagement, and how such strategies can simplify lesson planning. This workshop will draw on participants’ prior knowledge, both as students and teachers, to craft a working definition of active learning. Participants will then explore a range of strategies as they learn about the key elements of active learning and how it can be incorporated within the university classroom. Each participant will leave with a toolkit of strategies that they can begin to implement in their next lesson as well as increased confidence in using active learning
