What is Active Learning? Does it work? If so, how can I introduce some active learning exercises into my lecture without losing too much time (and my mind)?

Abstract If these questions appeal to you and feel
relevant, you might enjoy this mini-workshop on active learning. Our goal is to
keep it simple and introduce a few active and cooperative learning exercises
that work (and let participants share some that worked for them) so you can
break up long lectures and see if students understood what you just taught
Douglas B. Luckie
is an Associate Professor jointly appointed in the Lyman Briggs Residential
College and in the Department of Physiology at Michigan State University. He
received his Ph.D. at the University of Virginia in Molecular Physiology and
completed his postdoctoral studies at Stanford University in Human Biology. He
is director of the Cystic Fibrosis Research Lab and STEM Learning Lab. His
research groups pursue both discipline-based physiology research into pH
abnormalities and invasive pathogens in the disease, cystic fibrosis, as well
as discipline-based education research (DBER) into the use of visual models,
interdisciplinary discourse and inquiry laboratories to increase student
higher-level learning in the sciences.
