The overarching learning objective is to instructors (whether teacher or trainers) design, launch, and administer an active-learning course for adults that can be delivered in a face-to-face, remote or asynchronous modality. The strategies proposed will help with student engagment (which can directly affect learning outcomes in positive ways), but also gives instructors of any discipline the tools and strategies to enhance his or her course by incorporating active learning in a teaching and learning context.
The learning material provides self-reflective and peer-engagement opportunities in each module. Taking a thoughtful approach to the assigned coursework in this learning activity will help the instructor prepare applicable lessons for his or her learners. Although slated as a seven-week training filled with varied learning activities, the course content will not overwhelm a busy teaching or training professional.
