An upcoming workshop will offer faculty and graduate students a chance to learn about implementing active learning strategies in large lecture halls.
Milos Savic, an assistant professor at the University of Oklahoma and specialist in research in undergraduate mathematics instruction, will lead the workshop. The event is 9:30 a.m. April 10 in the Gaughan Multicultural Center’s Unity Room.
Savic plans to discuss how to implement classroom norms that encourage active learning in large lectures. He will also help graduate students and faculty identify small active learning techniques that can be implemented without transforming individual teaching styles.
The first 10 graduate students who register for and attend the workshop will be given a free digital copy of the book “Dynamic Lecturing: Research-Based Strategies to Enhance Lecture Effectiveness” by Christine Harrington and Todd Zakrajsek.
This workshop is being sponsored by the University of Nebraska–Lincoln’s Century Club and Graduate Student Assembly.
