Active Learning Week Video Showcase

Community Working Group

Active Learning Week was initiated in 2016 by the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy as a national effort to incorporate active teaching and learning strategies in STEM classrooms. As one of the original professional association partners in this effort, AAC&U invited STEM faculty from its more than 1400 member institutions to take a pledge to integrate these advanced pedagogies into their teaching practice.

To date, over 650 STEM faculty have not only taken this pledge, but also committed themselves to ensuring that their active learning classroom practices are culturally responsive – fully grounded in the lived experiences of students of all races/ethnicities, genders, sexual orientations, and socioeconomic statuses.

Several outstanding faculty have produced a video about their work promoting Active Learning in their classrooms. They are listed below. We hope you enjoy them!

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.
