Commit to Active Learning on Oct. 25

By: Kathleen Tuck   Published 7:31 am / September 28, 2016

The White House Office of Science and Technology Policy has designated Oct. 25 as Active Learning Day nationwide. On that day, teaching faculty from across the country are being challenged to incorporate at least 10 minutes of active learning into their courses.

Boise State is demonstrating its commitment to quality undergraduate education and the broader implementation of active learning strategies by participating in this event.

Faculty are invited to join in this effort by committing to use an active learning strategy in class for at least 10 minutes on Oct. 25. If you don’t teach that day, you are encouraged to participate by instead incorporating 10 minutes of active learning in your class on Oct. 24 or Oct. 26.

Please help document Boise State’s participation in this event by completing the linked Google form by Oct. 21.

If you would like to participate in Active Learning Day but don’t have a particular active learning strategy in mind, the Center for Teaching and Learning is hosting a workshop from 10-11:30 a.m. Oct. 7 titled “Getting Students to Do Something in Class: Active Learning Strategies for the Classroom.” Register online.
