Our final Pedagogy Seminar - Friday, March 28th - will be an exciting opportunity to preview (and test drive) one of the campus's brand new Active Learning Classrooms. Our guest guides (and general experts on the active learning classroom initiative on campus) will be: Brian Yuhnke and Tina Oestreich.

Because we will be exploring the smaller of the two classrooms (Mather Memorial 125), I have divided the session into two groups - you are welcome to come to either session (but note that the English Graduate Students have a conflicting event until 1:00 p.m. that day):

Friday, March 28, 2014 - Mather Memorial 125
12:30-1:00 - English/SAGES Lecturers, non-ENGL Graduate TAs
1:15-1:45 - English Graduate TAs

Our agenda will be simple: get the "feel" for the classroom - its layout and its technologies - and help the Writing Program brainstorm ways to incorporate the space and tools of these classrooms into the writing classroom.

To whet your appetite, please see the following resources:

This session is strongly encouraged for everyone, especially those interested in the digital humanities, technologies for teaching, active learning, and those just curious about the space!
