Engaging Students with Active Learning: An Online Workshop

In this online workshop, you will see examples of active learning at U-M, reflect on how these techniques could be applied in your own classroom, and engage with fellow graduate students to address any obstacles to implementing the techniques. Specifically, you will:

  1. Watch a series of short video clips showing U-M instructors using a variety of teaching and learning activities to engage students in active learning. (about 35 minutes total)
  2. Write a reflective response to the videos you watched. (suggested length: 400-800 words)
  3. Read and comment on at least two responses written by other participants. These comments will respond to questions raised by your colleagues.
  4. Complete an online survey about your experience as a participant.

It should take about 2-3 hours to complete all of the activities.

  • Steps 1 and 2 must be completed between Monday, 7/9 and Sunday, 7/15.
  • Step 3 must be completed between Monday, 7/16 and Thursday, 7/19.
  • Step 4 must be completed between Friday, 7/20 and Monday, 7/23.

Registered participants will receive detailed instructions on how to access the online workshop on Monday, 7/9 when the workshop begins. Completion of all of the activities will count as one workshop toward Requirement B for the Graduate Teacher Certificate.
