For this episode of Hub Talk, Bill and Colin go on the road to the Chemeketa Yamhill Valley campus to 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. Shannon shares the research along with her experience with active learning strategies, so that instructors can add simple activities to their own classroom teaching.
