Course Details
Course Name: Webinar: High Impact Practices
Provided By: Center for Instructional Innovation and Assessment
Description: Do students think that they like being spoon-fed: passively taking notes and viewing lectures on static PowerPoint slides? Do they think that easy learning is to open up, swallow some facts, spit them out, and forget about them? Of course, this is not learning at all. And the truth is that it really is not interesting or enjoyable either. Real learning—applying, analyzing, synthesizing, evaluating—is not only enjoyable but increases academic success and persistence.

Join us in the Viking Union for a "site connection" to this live webinar, from Innovative Educators, where M.E. McWilliams, an award-winning learning center director (Austin State University), will share easy-to-implement techniques for creating interactive, high-impact experiences for students. These techniques apply to venues in the classroom as well as outside of the classroom and support the vision for students to think for themselves.

The webinar will thereafter be available to WWU for one year; contact the CIIA if you would like access information.
