Professional Development Webinar: Lecture Alternatives – Four Strategies to Engage Students

Explore what other educators are doing to improve student learning by incorporating active-learning strategies into their courses. Small changes can make a big impact, and simply breaking up daily lectures can make the lectures themselves more successful when you do deliver them. Learn strategies to

  • turn readings into active-learning tools;
  • incorporate student reflections and feedback into course materials;
  • derive whole-class learning opportunities by using questions in a variety of ways;
  • leverage student presentations, field trips, and other class activities to improve learning and course satisfaction.

This webinar, presented by Alice Cassidy from the University of British Columbia, is designed to shift your perspective on your role in the classroom and give you the confidence to try new techniques to improve student performance. Join us on Thursday, December 13, from 3:00 to 4:00 p.m. in the Professional Development Center, E. H. Butler Library 181B. There was no opportunity to preview this webinar.
