Wednesday, March 9 5:15 PM-6:15 PM Location: Bellmeade
Abstract: For institutions to continue in the business of preparing learners for the world of work, students have to be actively engaged in the learning process. Educational researchers tell us that active engagement in learning is an important goal for our students especially for them to compete in the global society. Can active student learning take place on-line? How can instructors engage students in active learning with on-line courses? What pedagogical strategies can instructors utilize to ensure that students become actively involved in the learning process in on-line classes? In this session, the questions posed will be answered through the modeling of effective pedagogical skills that engage students in active learning.
