In this episode of Hub Talk, Bill and Colin talk with Shannon Othus-Gault about her work with active learning strategies. Many times instructors are told ways of altering their teaching that should benefit student success and improve classroom equity, but these techniques are not always shared constructively. Active learning and metacognition are many times preached with research showing their efficacy, but rarely are teachers given easy tools to try in their own classrooms that don’t seem both time-intensive and/or daunting. This session aims to have instructors participate in active learning techniques while learning about the research behind their efficacy so that instructors can see how easy it can be to add simple activities to their own classroom teaching.
