What 5 Play-based Activities Can I Use to Create an Active, Learning-centered Class?
This program will help you become more student-centered in the way you design and teach your courses by presenting five play-based activities that can be incorporated into teaching for almost any subject. Simple and engaging activities such as comparing and contrasting similarities and differences can greatly impact student learning. Play engages students to succeed in tasks they generally find unpleasant or challenging. This mentor introduces five successful games (plus suggests several more) that actively engage students with content and break up a lecture-only instruction format. Learning, rehearsing, and reviewing in creative and playful ways enhances student scores, student evaluations of professors, attendance and retention, and transforms the class into a student-centered classroom.
