Creating a Productive Academic Mindset in Your Classroom through Active Learning
Monday, February 25, 2019 - 3:00pm to 4:15pm
Event Type: 
Event Location: 
Academic Building (H) - Room 202
By Invitation Only: 

Employing active learning techniques does not automatically produce high quality learning, nor does it necessarily contribute to a productive academic mindset in students. While a large body of research shows that incorporating active learning techniques into the classroom can significantly improve student achievement of learning outcomes, how can we use it to produce a productive academic mindset as well? In this workshop we will explore how we can create productive academic mindsets by engaging students in ways that really make a difference. Specifically, we will consider three components identified in the research that teachers can influence student mindset in the classroom: emotional engagement, cognitive-emotional engagement, and behavioral engagement.
