While utilizing active learning techniques has been demonstrated to improve students’ understanding and retention of material, determining how to best incorporate these techniques can be difficult. This workshop is designed to help graduate students responsible for conducting tutorials by providing concrete strategies for restructuring class time to make use of active learning techniques. Participants will leave the workshop with strategies for encouraging student problem solving and engagement as well as an understanding of potential pitfalls to avoid when implementing these new strategies.
