Introduction to Dynamic Lecturing and the Science of Learning

NOTE: If registrations are full, please register anyway. We expect to be able to accommodate many from the waitlist for this session.

Discuss designing your classroom sessions for learning, including "dynamic lecturing," with Dr. Todd Zakrajsek. Dr. Zakrajsek incorporates recent research on learning and effective active lecture techniques in this one-hour workshop. Participants will get ideas for modifying their lectures and other classroom activities, so that students learn in their limited classroom time.
