What: The Art and Science of Active Learning is a university faculty community discussion seminar, focusing on aspects of active learning at UCR. Hosted by XCITE, The Art and Science of Active Learning seminar addresses how UCR professors:

  • Differentiate active learning strategies from traditional, instructor-centered strategies
  • Develop an appreciation for the benefits of active learning
  • Participate in a community of learners around the topic of active learning
  • Learn strategies to prepare students for active learning
  • Identify tools that support active learning
  • Compare and contrast teaching methodologies for effective active learning
  • Construct an activity or module map that includes active learning strategies
