TCDC is pleased to offer an Innovative Educators series of webinars on active learning. These webinars will take an active learning approach, so participants can expect to watch and listen and also to share ideas with the presenter and each other. Case studies will be presented, but participants are encouraged to think about and work on a course that is relevant to them during the webinar. A discussion period will follow the webinar for faculty to share thoughts, questions, and effective practices. Faculty are not required to register for all webinars. Each webinar in this series is a stand-alone presentation. Can’t make it to the group webinar session? Please contact email@example.com for details on how to access remotely. Continue reading
