Active Learning Community Session - 8-14

The Rutgers Active Learning Community will hold a virtual get-together THIS Friday, August 14 from noon to 1pm to discuss the use of active learning techniques in a remote environment. What are the challenges? What are the opportunities? What are the resources? And what in the world is everyone else doing?

  • We'll lead off the session with some insights and tips from Justin Kalef of the Philosophy Department and Christy Beal of the Division of Life Sciences.
  • There will then be a chance to meet in smaller breakout groups to engage in a brief activity led by Christina Bifulco and Chris Drue from the Center for Teaching Advancement & Assessment. This activity will help you develop your own thinking and ask specific questions, but it will also seamlessly demonstrate some of the tools you might use in your own teaching.
  • We'll then reconvene for a conversation to share our thoughts.

This virtual session will be useful if you were planning on utilizing an active learning approach already, or if you want to employ some of these techniques specifically to enhance students' remote learning experience.

Apologies for the late announcement. Getting schedules together this summer has been a challenge. We hope you can drop in and add to the discussion. 

Please send an email to if you are able to make it.
