Interactive Lectures with Active Learning

According to Clarissa David, “the evidence is such that not incorporating active learning [is] so unscientific it’s actually unethical at this point”. However, applying activities in our lectures remains somehow a challenge.

In this workshop we will define interactive lectures, distinguish active from passive learning, name the characteristics of active learning moments and exemplify different activities we can use in our lectures to enhance learning and focus in our classrooms.
