Teaching Matters: Active Learning

Friday, January 10, 2020 | 12:00 PM - 2:00 PM
The registration period has closed for this event.

Topic: Active Learning

Explore the principles behind active learning (sometimes known as engaged or participatory learning), grow your repertoire of techniques, and visit some of the active learning classrooms on campus.

Lunch will be provided

Program Overview:
This program will provide new and pre-tenure faculty with the opportunity to learn about timely and practical approaches for enhancing their teaching, while building their campus-wide network in an informal setting. Roundtable facilitated discussions on a range of topics in teaching and learning will combine evidence-based research with first-hand experience from participants and CTL staff.

Participants in this program will:
• apply evidence-based strategies for teaching to their own courses and classrooms (both face-to-face and online)
• develop a network of faculty, staff, and educational support professionals across campus
• convert Queen’s University’s institutional priorities for teaching and learning into manageable components of their own teaching practice


Registration open through Friday, January 10, 2020
