GradTeach Workshop: How Learning Works: Engaging Students with Active Learning

Active learning is an evidence-based approach to teaching that is fundamental to success as an educator.

In this workshop, instructors will focus on helping you better understand how people learn, and how this works in conjunction with active learning. Specifically, they will discuss the formal cognitive processes of how the brain stores, retains, and retrieves information, and why active learning is beneficial for such processes. Finally, participants will collaborate to create strategies on how they can incorporate active learning. 

This workshop is open to all UGA graduate students and postdocs.
