Presentation Title:  Engaging students in active learning at UTM

Since 2015, 4,240 students have participated in 57 courses that have been held in two pilot technology-enhanced active learning classrooms (ALCs) at UTM. This project is a collaborative effort involving instructors, TAs, students, and the UTM cross-unit ALC Team.

This session will focus on a combination of pedagogy, practice and purpose; we will share several instructor- and librarian-led case studies of active learning activities in two UTM pilot technology-enhanced active learning classrooms, and provide an overview of some of the supports in place to assist instructors, TAs, and students.
