TOPIC OF DISCUSSION

What I Hear, I Forget; What I See, I Remember, What I Do, I Understand

Active learning is an approach to instruction that involves dynamically engaging students with the course material through methods that place responsibility on the learner. Active learning methods help promote higher order thinking skills such as application, analysis, and synthesis, and engage students in deep rather than surface learning. In this presentation, Dr. Raines and Dr. Aloia will review best practices for active learning and strategies to encourage student immersion including admission tickets, fishbowl discussions, think-pair-share, and a hatful of quotes.   

Dr. Anne Raines serves as Senior Director for Academic Initiatives in the Student Success Center and subscribes to a students-helping-students model to provide academic support. Active learning and student engagement are at the center of student-employee training for the Peer Academic Coaching, Supplemental Instruction, Tutoring, and Writing Studio programs. At various times, Anne has coordinated the SI, tutoring, and writing programs on campus.

Dr. Lindsey S. Aloia is the Director of the Honors Studies Program in the Fulbright College of Arts and Sciences and an Associate Professor in the Department of Communication at the University of Arkansas. Her research focuses on elucidating the causes and consequences of verbal aggression in interpersonal associations. Specifically, Dr. Aloia studies how qualities of interpersonal interactions, as well as individuals, shape the use of and reactions to verbally aggressive experiences. In addition, Dr. Aloia teaches a variety of undergraduate communication courses, including communication theory, interpersonal communication, and conflict communication. Dr. Aloia also teaches graduate seminars in interpersonal communication and family communication, and graduate courses in quantitative research methods.
