Abstract: This session will introduce participants to a variety of active and interactive teaching and learning methods. Some basic theory will be provided as a foundation for these methods. The goal of this session is to introduce these methods to participants by to allowing them to experience these first hand. This will increase the likelihood that participants will use the methods in their own teaching after the session. Topics will include an overview, rationale, multiple methods, barriers and how to overcome these, cooperative learning structures and resources for later self-directed learning.
