Active learning is an instruction methodology that takes students past listen and taking notes passively and moves them towards developing skills and higher order thinking through activities. These activities might include, discussion, writing, reading, hands-on approaches, and other that allow them to actively build new knowledge and understanding.

Active learning activities are often, though not exclusively, collaborative.

In this hands-on session, you will engage with active learning techniques through a tangible deck of "active learning activities" that you'll get to keep once the session is over. You will learn how to evaluate which activities might work best for your course, and strategies on how to implement them.

During this hands-on session, participants will:

* Understand the basics of active learning
* Gain a deck of active learning resources
* Develop a plan for how to implement one or more
