How Does Active Learning Impact Critical Thinking, Creativity and Innovation?
3-part Institute: Tuesday-Thursday, May 16-18, 9:00 AM-1:30 PM, A-70 Cyert Hall (lunch provided)
A large body of research suggests that active learning improves student outcomes, yet questions still remain. For example, which active learning strategies best support development of critical thinking, creativity, or innovation skills? What implementation strategies enhance or impede the benefits of active learning? This is where you come in (and can make an impact, building on our current understanding of what works best for learning)! Participation in the Institute will enable you to study active learning in your CMU courses, and the Eberly Center will support you in conducting this work, regardless of your prior experience with active learning or education research.
