On Friday, participants will be introduced to scientific research, concepts, strategies, and technological tools enabling us to actively engage students in their own learning. On Saturday, participants will consider how Scholarship of Teaching and Learning research methods can enable them to design practical studies focused on the application and assessment of these various approaches. The sessions will foster discussion of how the ideas from each speaker can be taken back to our own institutions. Each speaker will follow his presentation with opportunities for the audience to process key concepts in a discussion/workshop environment.
