Engaging Learners through Active Instruction and Assessment Workshop
A 90-minute workshop, Wednesday, November 14, 2018, 2:30pm Eastern/1:30 Central/12:30 Mountain/11:30am Pacific

Whether you have one 60-minute session or a whole semester, successful instruction requires engaging with students early. Information literacy instructors can prepare students for learning and maximize participation during class time by employing key strategies both before class begins and in the critical first 15 minutes of class time.

By the end of this session, participants will be ready to:

  • quickly create welcoming environments where students feel comfortable speaking, sharing mis-steps, and detailing accomplishments;
  • use principles of inclusive pedagogy to create customized and effective active learning exercises; and
  • empower students to take leadership roles in their learning experiences.

While completing your purchase, fill in the name and e-mail address of the participant who will sign in to the event by clicking the "Attendees" button to the right of the item in your cart. This individual will receive an e-mail from WebEx confirming registration before the event begins. Attendees should add messenger@webex.com to their approved email sender list, so they can ensure that they receive the automatic notifications.

This is an online event hosted through WebEx. Further technical information is available at the ALA Store FAQ page.
