This highly interactive session will enable TAs and graduate students to articulate a rationale for active learning pedagogies, as well as expand their toolkit of effective strategies for engaging students in active learning. Resources such as Elizabeth Barkley’s Student Engagement Techniques (2010) will inform the session; participants will be provided with resources to consult during and after the workshop. Brief explanations of a range of student engagement techniques will be combined with activities in which the participants will work in pairs or small groups to develop their own ideas concerning applications and adaptations of the presented strategies.
