Technologies and Techniques to Promote Active Learning in a Large Lecture Course

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

HPA 101 is a large class that serves as a “gateway” course for the Health Policy Administration major and minor. Historically, the method of instruction has been a lecture format. With the help of Education Technology Services and the Schreyer Institute for Teaching Excellence, the instructor has migrated the course to a structure emphasizing active learning and collaboration during class. This session examines the application of various technologies (clickers, lecture capture), simulation games, and in-class techniques. It addresses what worked/did not work and how these techniques can be applied to classes of all sizes. Students will provide their perspective.
