Academy of Teaching Scholars Competency: Instructional Strategies

Online ,Zoom

Presenter(s): Anusha S Rao, Douglas Jerolimov
Audience: Faculty, Staff and Learners


Active learning strategies in the classroom have shown to increase student’ motivation, improve critical and higher-order thinking skills, and stay engaged and attentive during the class session. It helps create a three-way interaction among the students, the subject content, and the instructor. In this webinar, we will discuss a broad spectrum of research-based active learning strategies that can be adapted into different learning environments and disciplines.

This webinar is part of the Center for Teaching and Learning’s online mini-workshop series focused on foundational teaching skills, Teaching@IUPUI. Designed for new faculty, adjunct faculty, graduate students, and those looking for a refresher on good teaching practices, the webinars are short, with a brief presentation interspersed with opportunities for interaction and questions. Grounded in current research, the workshops address various teaching topics and provide participants with strategies and resources to make instruction more effective, efficient, and enjoyable. Sessions are scheduled with the time of semester in mind, to keep topics relevant for faculty needs at that time.
