Active Learning Day Video Showcase 2016

Community Working Group

On October 25th,  more than 165 colleges and universities and STEM-related professional societies participated in Active Learning Day—reaching more than 100,000 students and supporting STEM faculty in adopting active-learning strategies by investing in faculty professional development and creating appropriate faculty rewards.

Of those 165 institutions, eight have taken an additional step to create a video about what they did on Active Learning Day.

STEM Central and Project Kaleidoscope at AAC&U are proud to showcase the Active Learning Day videos here in this online video library. We hope this library will provide college and university faculty with dynamic resources for more effectively implementing active teaching and learning methods which will ultimately produce a more diverse, competitively-trained, and liberally-educated STEM workforce.

Additional details on the steps being taken by more than 160 colleges and universities is available here.

We would love to add more video resources to this library. If you have a video about Active Learning you would like to be showcased here, please email the youtube link using our "contact us" form. 

We hope the videos can inspire discourse around active learning. Please feel free to leave a comment, idea, or suggestion by clicking the "comment" button under the video.
