Empowering our Educators: Active Learning Strategies in the Study Abroad Classroom

For faculty across the globe, new pedagogies are both exciting and intimidating. Instructional innovations such as live polling, flipped lectures, backward design, and peer learning are well-suited for globally-mobile and tech-savvy Generation Z students, yet professors rarely have the opportunity to experiment with these techniques in order to determine which may best support their course goals. This session will serve as a professional development opportunity for study abroad instructors and provide dedicated time for practicing active learning strategies, thereby empowering educators to use these tools in their own classrooms.
