Technology-Enabled Active Learning Strategies (TEALS): A Workshop
James L. Morrison, Facilitator
Employers are expressing increasing dissatisfaction with the ability of college graduates to access, evaluate, and communicate information; to use information technology (IT) tools effectively; and to work well within groups across cultural lines. A change of instructional paradigms--from passive to active (authentic) learning strategies, such as project-based learning, problem-based learning, or inquiry-based learning--is clearly needed.
The purpose of this workshop is to first look into the future and its implications our institution, our curriculum, our students, and our careers. Second, we want to explore an instructional approach that may be more effective in preparing our students for their futures. Specifically, we will explore what is meant by technology-enabled active learning strategies, how these strategies relate to student success, what the barriers are to implementing these strategies across academic departments, and what approaches can be used to facilitate incorporating these strategies in our instruction.
Please review the following publications prior to the workshop:
Also: Please consider reviewing (and participating in) three discussions on Linkedin’s Ideagora group related to using TEALS in Asia and the Middle East as well as a discussion focusing on faculty resistance to TEALS.
