Summary: Engaging students in learning is one proven strategy to improve understanding and retention of the course content. This workshop aims to provide participants with the interactive tools to promote engagement within the lecture format. First, we will briefly address some of the theoretical reasons for the importance of interactive teaching and learning. Then, we will focus on concrete strategies (including technology and small group work) that will promote interaction in your classroom. We will discuss disciplinary differences in application of these strategies as well as the strengths and weaknesses of various methods of getting students to interact during lecture.
