Interactive Lectures Online Workshop Series, Part II - Joel MacDonald
August 5
1:00–4:00 pm

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 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, hosted through Blackboard Collaborate, will have you making your own content during the sessions and aims to give instructors the opportunity to experience first-hand the components necessary for creating interactive lectures. While it is good if you can attend both parts, you do not need to attend Part I to attend Part II.

Part one (July 29th), titled Better PowerPoints for Better Lectures, focuses on slide design and the creation of study handouts and is 3 hours in length. Part two (August 5th), 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 and is also 3 hours in length.
