In order to learn, students must do more than just listen -- they must read, write, discuss, or be engaged in solving problems. In this session, participants will learn about active learning strategies as well as how active learning is not limited to a face-to-face or synchronous environment. Additionally, the presenters will showcase examples of how active learning can be achieved in an online environment.
