TEAL: A Slacker's guide to active learning

This is a presentation/workshop that was recorded on Friday, May 04, 2018 in SF3201 as part of the TEAL Fellowship Series. 

When the University of Minnesota constructed a building with 19 active-learning classrooms, among the biggest [but short-lived] hurdles was the faculty. Associate Professor Sehoya Cotner, in the Department of Biology Teaching and Learning, was an early adopter, and began the experience with what was “the worst week of my teaching career.” In this interactive presentation, she’ll discuss her experience transitioning from traditional to active classrooms, the evidence she gathered that transformed her teaching, and some easy strategies for making effective use of these spaces.


Special thanks to Steven Bailey for organizing (and for lunch!).
