 Do you struggle to integrate core concepts cumulatively over a course? Do you ever find yourself looking for new ways to stimulate students' interest during class? Or maybe you’ve been looking to help students move beyond just “getting the facts” to making connections among key ideas? In this interactive roundtable, we will share strategies for engaging students in lecture and discussion sections using collaborative learning. Collaborative learning strategies help to de-emphasize content and give students more time to develop an awareness of their own learning processes, offering them a structure for learning new content, evaluating new material, and identifying answers (or at least organizing the possibilities) to unsolved problems.
