Project ACC Summer Institute on Active & Engaged Teaching

June 10-14, 2019 | 8AM to 1PM | EVC

The Project ACC Summer Institute on Active and Engaged Teaching is an application-only program led by the current Project ACC Faculty Fellows. This week-long event includes interactive plenary and breakout sessions that will give you tools necessary to explore and pilot engaged & interactive teaching strategies in your classroom.

The goal of research based Active Teaching is to engage students in classroom activities that promote analysis, synthesis, and evaluation of course material. Educational techniques, such as group work and peer interaction, stimulate student-centered learning that encourages students to reflect, analyze, and apply course material. In addition, Active Learning increases student engagement and enjoyment while also promoting deeper learning.
