Active Learning Faculty Workshop

Event Date: 
Friday, May 16, 2014 -
1:00pm to 10:00pm
Description: 

College of Pharmacy faculty will meet for a day-long workshop. Speakers will include Adam Persky, Jean Florman, Wayne Jacobson, Cornelia Chesley Lang, and Sarah Vigmostad.

There are four major goals for the workshop:

  1. Awareness of need for change – demonstrate the evidence for why one must move from pure traditional ‘lecture’ formats to evidence-based learning techniques.
  2. Awareness of opportunity – Make faculty aware of techniques that can augment and enhance (e.g., audience response) learning events as well as techniques for completing altering the classroom experience (e.g., flipping the class). 
  3. Cultivate participant interests in becoming ‘facilitators of learning,’ as opposed to deliverers of knowledge.
  4. Demonstrate a selection of active learning techniques of interest to one’s teaching.

All faculty are required to attend.
