2016 Active and Engaged Learning

The Ellbogen Center for Teaching and Learning is pleased to announce that it is now accepting applications for the John P. Ellbogen Summer Institute on Active and Engaged Learning, from May 23-26, 2016.

You may have heard the buzz about active and engaged learning as a tool for developing critical thinking. Perhaps you have already begun integrating active and engaged learning pedagogies into your teaching. If so, you may be interested in applying for our 3rd John P Ellbogen Summer Institute focusing this year on active and engaged learning. The institute will provide participants with a theoretical grounding in evidence-based, nationally recognized active and engaged learning pedagogies; key strategies and skills for integrating active and engaged learning into their course(s); and hands-on development support. Throughout the four-day program, participants will build a strong peer cohort as they share strategies, challenges, and successes related to active and engaged learning.
