Join us on May 16th for our second annual day of active learning at Rutgers-New Brunswick. We have put together a day of keynote presentations, workshops, talks, and panels designed to inspire and build upon your use of active learning. This year's special keynote presenter will be Dr. Maryellen Weimer, Professor Emerita of Teaching and Learning at Penn State, an expert on instruction in higher education. The day will also include workshops relating to course design, best polling practices, the use of active learning techniques for training sessions, and ways to use active learning technology and spaces.

Of course, we will also share some of the exciting active learning used at Rutgers through a faculty panel session and breakouts that will allow you to dialogue with your peers about topics in active learning that interest you.
