Making Active Learning Easy

Making Active Learning Easy

Are you starting to flip your classroom? Do you want your students to think for themselves?

In this webinar, we’ll explore tools that could help you implement a more interactive teaching approach, including ‘Micro Projects’: 1-hour long activities with supporting follow-up assignments that help students to learn about materials.

What you will learn

  • Hear some of the key trends behind why active learning is becoming more important
  • Learn about the concept of ‘Micro Projects’ – short classroom-based activities that enable active learning
  • Get ideas for projects that your students could complete using CES EduPack
  • See how the Materials Science and Engineering Package supports ‘Introduction to Materials’ courses
  • Discuss how to support active learning without taking time away from your research.
