From Lecturer to Facilitator – Turning Away from the Board in Science and Engineering Courses

The lecture is one of the most commonly used teaching styles in higher education, known for its simplicity and traditional role in the classroom. While it may be the standard way to teach equation-heavy courses, there are multiple methods which surpass lectures in the ability to engage students with the course content. This workshop will discuss strategies to help you move away from the board so you can spend more time interacting with your students and directly facilitate their learning experience. We will investigate the pedagogy of active learning and identify steps that will allow you to transition from a traditional lecture to interactive lectures or blended learning, especially in a Science, Technology, Engineering, or Mathematics (STEM) course.

This workshop will be facilitated by Stephanie Gillespie, VIP Graduate Mentor at the Georgia Institute of Technology.
