Interactive Lectures Workshop Series

Notice Date

Our learners face many demands for their attention, so getting them to actively engage in their learning can be a challenge. How do you choose the best pedagogies? Today, lectures and active learning have been cast as competing opposites. In fact, they can be quite effective when used together. Interactive lectures combine engaging lecture segments with selected active learning methods. 

This intensive two-part workshop series, offered by the E-Learning Office, aims to give instructors the opportunity to experience first-hand the components necessary for creating interactive lectures.

Part one, titled Better PowerPoints for Better Lectures, focuses on slide design and the creation of study handouts. Part two, titled Action-Oriented Learning Design, focuses on interactions that can be created in PowerPoint and on active learning techniques that will connect and solidify lecture materials.

Part one will be offered on Monday, August 9th and repeated again on Thursday August 26th from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm in Room 210 of the Robertson Library. Part two will be offered on Tuesday, November 12th from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm in Room 265 of the Robertson Library. Interested individuals can register for either part on its own or for both parts.
