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:
- Awareness of need for change – demonstrate the evidence for why one must move from pure traditional ‘lecture’ formats to evidence-based learning techniques.
- 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).
- Cultivate participant interests in becoming ‘facilitators of learning,’ as opposed to deliverers of knowledge.
- Demonstrate a selection of active learning techniques of interest to one’s teaching.
All faculty are required to attend.
