Workshop Description

Is there something that is absolute Alfredo sauce in your class? You and your colleagues can fix it together!

In this workshop we will demonstrate active learning strategies that enabled us to turn our Alfredo sauce into a nonna's heirloom recipe.

You will work collaboratively to explore strategies for improving student engagement and success using interdisciplinary activities, place based and contextualized learning.

There will be time for you to share the activities that worked for you in past and work with people from other disciplines to get new perspectives and ideas for your course.

You will gain access to Leeward's online repository of nonna approved instructional modules.
