The best way to counter student resistance to active learning is to create a culture of engaged learning in your classroom during the first few weeks. Participants will learn about recent literature on countering student resistance to active learning and brainstorm how psychological principles can inform creation of norms and procedures in their classroom that create an environment naturally inclined towards engaged learning.

Looking for new ways to assess student learning in your course? Video assignments can be used to encourage higher-order thinking, learner engagement, communication skills, and collaboration. In this workshop, participants will discuss best practices for developing video assignments and learn how the assignments can be posted, accepted, and graded through eLC and Kaltura, UGA’s video platform that is integrated with eLC.

During eLC Drop-In Hours, eLC consultants will be available to assist as you work on your course independently. There is no formal instruction in this session, but we can assist you with eLC tasks such as setting up your gradebook, customizing your homepage, adding and managing course content, and creating assignments and assessments.
Registration is not required but is helpful so that we will know how many consultants should attend. Details
