How to Increase Student Intellectual Engagement and understanding During the Lecture Portion of Your Class 

written by Edward E. Prather

In this participation-based workshop, we will work collaboratively through instructional strategies proven to move students from an intellectually passive to active role in the LECTURE portion of the classroom.  Members of the Center for Astronomy Education (CAE) at the University of Arizona have been conducting rigorous classroom evaluation of research-validated curriculum designed to actively engage students learning during the traditional lecture portion of the classroom.  Participants will be given first-hand experience with several different instructional strategies (appropriate for their classrooms) that represent a wide range of instructional investment.  Active audience participation will be required--no, really, it will be fun, really!!
