ARE YOU "HIP" WITH TRAINING?
When we need to disseminate information in student affairs, we often sit staff in a room and lecture but research tells us we could not find a worse strategy for teaching. This session will review what high impact practices are, why they are important, provide strategies for making training active and for using technology for active learning.
As a result do attending this workshop, attendees will be able to:
Define active learning
Summarize theoretical and evidence-based foundations of, and rationale for, active learning
List active learning strategies (cooperative activities, low stakes writing, the "enhanced lecture")
Identify ways to use technology to create high impact practices
Analyze benefits and challenges of active learning strategies
Apply concepts learned in the workshop to their practice
