Spring 2014 Course: Exploring New Technologies for Active Learning: Maximizing Student Engagement
The knowledge base for the STEM classroom has shifted markedly in recent years. Popular and well-studied strategies, including the use of flipping, MOOCs, embedded audio/video and videoconferencing have all become part of the STEM classroom standard operating procedure for teaching and learning. In this class, students will learn how to effectively utilize these teaching/learning strategies in the STEM classroom, and will have the opportunity to use these strategies in actual learning situations.
