Active Teaching Lab

Active Teaching Lab - Hands-onA great partnership between DoIT Academic Technology and the UW Teaching Academy, since January 2015 Active Teaching Labs have been providing a safe space and refreshments for instructors to share and learn with each other in structured explorations of the cool teaching tools and techniques that your peers are using to engage students and teach more effectively.

If you missed an event, each session page has a link to a video of the instructor sharing: 1) what they wanted; 2) what they tried; 3) what happened; and 4) what they’d do next time. Or check them all out in our new, regularly-updated, easy-to-navigate eText compilation:

The Active Teaching Lab is co-sponsored by the UW Teaching Academy, which hosts this page, and DoIT Academic Technology.
