Active Learning Methodologies – London 30 April 10:00-16:00UCU head office, London
30 April 2019, 10:00 - 16:00
Research shows that active learning is much better recalled, enjoyed and understood. Active methods require students to ‘make their own meaning’ of what is being learnt. During this process neural connections are physically made in the brain, the process we call learning. Passive methods alone such as listening do not require us to make these neural connections or conceptualisations.
This one day workshop is aimed at all educational practitioners involved in teaching and learning. It will focus on:
- active learning and the research behind it
- the learning management cycle
- learner-centric methods aimed at increasing engagement
- design and assessment approaches using different methods
- available resources and introduction of new technologies.
