Did you know that engaging students by interjecting an activity into lecture, an activity that requires as little as seven minutes of class time, has been shown to double learning? In a meta-study of 225 studies, interjecting a short activity into a lecture doubled learning.
Indeed, engaging students in our lectures is the key to giving extraordinary lectures. Come participate as the research is explained and several of the best ways of engaging students are modeled.
When you leave the workshop, you will be motivated and prepared to interject one or two activities into your lectures, lasting at least seven minutes total.
