Active Learning Institute, 2010

The fifth annual Active Learning Institute (ALI) is tentatively scheduled for Tuesday and Wednesday, August 24th and 25th, 2010. ALI helps faculty develop and refine skills for learner-centered teaching in their courses. Once again this year, Professor Chris Jernstedt (PBS) will address the institute with a presentation on how people learn and how learning changes brains.

Additional topics include theories of learning, course and syllabus design, collaborative learning, peer assessments, and information technology for active learning.

Participants in the 2010 ALI will receive a $500 stipend for full participation in the two-day institute. Anyone holding a faculty teaching appointment at Dartmouth at any rank (Arts and Sciences, Engineering, Tuck, and DMS) is eligible to apply.
