Students engage in activities such as reading, writing, discussion, or problem solving that promote analysis, synthesis, and evaluation of class content
Active Learning Week started October 23rd, 2017!
S&T Faculty were invited to showcase the unique ways in which they use active learning methods in their classrooms. These efforts were part of a nationwide movement to improve STEM education. If you'd like to participate in next year's Active Learning Week, please contact Educational Technology, and we can arrange for a videographer to visit your classroom and film your active learning session.
