This day-long event, the successor to the annual Active Learning Boot Camp, is a day of discussions, presentations, poster sessions, and workshops relating to various topics in active learning. Practitioners of active learning at Rutgers and other institutions will delve into different approaches to collaborative learning, share insights from their experiences, and explore different teaching techniques. 

The centerpiece of the day will be a keynote presentation and workshop from Dr. Kimberly Tanner of San Francisco State University. Dr. Tanner, a neurobiologist by training, founded the Science Education Partnership and Assessment Laboratory, which explores how students learn science and various ways to have that learning reflect how scientists work.  Through her work, she was written extensively on the use of active learning from the perspective of faculty and neuroscience.

The day's 30 and 60 minutes sessions and offer guests the opportunity to select the different areas they want to explore; whether it's gamification, medical demonstration, course construction, or any of the many topics that will be featured. Rutgers guests will also have an opportunity to strategize with Instructional Designers about how they can incorporate some of the ideas they've haerd into their teaching. For more information on the day's proceedings, explore the section below.

Registration for the Symposium is free and open to all members of institutions of learning. Breakfast and lunch will be provided. Visit the registration page to sign up.
