Students Speak Up—What Does and Doesn’t Work in Active Learning

From the teacher’s point of view, active learning should be a powerful instructional tool, but what do the students really think about it? Are they actually learning what you intend when you use these teaching strategies in the college classroom?

To find out, listen to some real experts on the subject-students themselves!

In this unique Magna Online Seminar, you have the opportunity to view a series of student interview video clips to hear the students point of view.

Benefits

Active learning places the ultimate responsibility for learning on students. Ideally, they will teach one another through carefully structured exercises designed to make them engage more deeply with course material. This seminar covers:

  • Why you should develop student-centered learning activities
  • How to prepare students for an active learning exercise
  • Where to find new activities and teaching ideas
  • Easy-to-use learning tools adaptable to most disciplines
  • Why it’s important to solicit ongoing feedback from students

Testimonial


This was a valuable seminar with excellent take away information from students about active engagement in learning activities. As a new educator, I felt that the presentation was wonderful! I am brainstorming on ways to implement active learning strategies in the classroom. – Seminar Attendee


Topics Covered

In a college classroom, what can go wrong, will.

The presenter explains why you have to guard against Murphy’s Law during classroom learning activities, and how to anticipate and fend off trouble before it arises. You are guided in:

  • Why you should test drive active learning activities before using them
  • How to stage a dry run of a possible learning exercise
  • New ways of incorporating activities in your curriculum
  • How to recognize the limitations of certain learning strategies.

Most importantly, however, you hear college students explain, in their own words, which learning activities motivate them the most…and which simply fall flat.

Audience

This seminar is appropriate for instructional faculty at any institution who would like to invigorate coursework with better active learning techniques. It is recommended for:

  • Tenure-track faculty
  • Online faculty
  • Adjunct instructors
  • Faculty trainers, and
  • Administrators who supervise instruction.
