Book Description

The Active Teaching Lab eJournal is a compilation of past lab recaps from the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s Active Teaching lab. Since Spring 2015, the Active Teaching lab has provided a safe space for structured explorations of teaching tools and techniques faculty and staff are using to engage students and teach more effectively. Labs are held weekly during the academic year, and include coffee and bagels.

Active learning refers to purposeful learning through engagement with instructors, other students and course content to promote problem-solving, application and understanding. A wide variety of technologies can help foster active learning.

Each Active Teaching Lab is broken into four parts:

  1. Listen: Hear colleagues share how they used a tool or technique in their teaching
  2. Experiment: Get hands-on experience with the tool
  3. Discuss: Unpack the pedagogy and develop ideas on applying it to your course
  4. Expand: Discover additional options to accomplish similar results

The Active Teaching Lab was developed in collaboration with the UW-Madison Teaching Academy, and is an example of how campus units work together to improve student experience and learning outcomes.
