Active Learning in Large Classes

Tuesday 1:30-3:15pm PT / 2:30-4:15pm MT / 3:30-5:15pm CT / 4:30-6:15pm ET Online
Round Table Discussion


Megan Plenge, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

This section will focus on methods for incorporating active learning strategies in large-enrollment courses. Discussion topics will include simple techniques for increasing student involvement in class, formative assessments that can be done on the fly, method for structuring graded active learning exercises, methods for implementation, group formation, and grading. Come prepared to discuss what works for you and what you're still struggling with! We anticipate participation from instructors with a mix of experiences; from those with little experience teaching with active learning to instructors with more experience who wish to discuss incorporation of new strategies to their courses.

All roundtable discussions will take place online, via Zoom (unless otherwise noted). Participants will be sent links to the Zoom room and connection info will be posted below prior to the session start.
