About the Institute
Individualize Your Teaching to Maximize Student Learning

Is your teaching practice evolving to include the right mixture of lectures and active learning strategies? Do you find yourself struggling to balance course content while implementing active learning exercises during class sessions? It is possible to do both.


Todd Zakrajsek, Ph.D., facilitates this institute where you will experience how to transform a classroom into a deep learning experience for students. While learning the foundations of human learning theory, you will determine how best to balance mini-lectures and active learning strategies through intentionally designed lesson plans to capture student attention, engage students with course materials, and improve student learning outcomes both inside and out of the classroom.

Why Participate?
By devoting your time to this focused workshop participants will:
  • Articulate foundational concepts of effective teaching and enhanced learning.
  • Construct an individualized teaching philosophy and plan of action to model lesson plans that incorporate the steps of dynamic lecturing
  • Adapt teaching methods that engage students with course content during and outside of class.
  • Use formative assessment strategies to improve your teaching as well as student learning.
