Active Learning & Retaining Female Engineering Students
Proven Techniques for Instructors to Fully Engage Students
"People learn best by doing things and reflecting on what they have done, not by watching and listening to someone telling them what to do".
A good lecture has the power to instruct, even motivate students, and research shows that lectures paired with active methods of learning get better results. Further, cooperative interactions among students promote gains in almost every conceivable learning outcome and a learning environment particularly congenial to female students. Felder and Brent will describe and illustrate:
Felder and Brent are best known for co-directing and facilitating the annual National Effective Teaching Institute (NETI) under the auspices of the American Society for Engineering Education. They are experts in effective teaching, course design, mentoring and supporting new faculty members, and faculty development in science and technology.
