September 20th, 2019: Best-Kept Secrets: UCF Resources That Support Active Learning Across Modalities

9:00 a.m.–1:00 p.m.

UCF offers and supports a myriad of resources that facilitate active learning in courses of all modalities. During this Teaching and Learning Day, representatives from the Faculty Center, Center for Distributed Learning, Office of Instructional Resources, and the Faculty Multimedia Center will present some resources that we consider our “Best-Kept Secrets”. We will frame the morning with active learning, break out into workshop-type sessions during which you can use the tools we present, and then hear from a panel of faculty who are avid users of these tools. Ultimately, you will leave with some new ideas for facilitating active learning online and face-to-face.

Fact: Students who enroll in my classes do not, for the most part, enter the classroom without my enthusiasm for writing. Some are fairly determined; others want to learn enough to get by. Most do not actively seek feedback ...
