Monday Morning Mentor: How Can I Use Technology Platforms to Engage Students in Active Learning?

Evidence suggests that simple, lecture-based instruction does not provide the engagement that students desperately need. If students aren’t engaged, then all the hard work put in to the course content and delivery is for naught. So how can instructors reinvigorate teaching methods to meet their students’ needs?

This 20-Minute Mentor reveals proven strategies to create a more engaging classroom experience for students. The presenter demonstrates four specific user-friendly and free technology tools and provides simple “how to” directions and creative activity ideas for each tool. Learn how to reimagine course content and start more effectively engaging students!
