CUT Interactive Teaching Activities (CTE4165)

Monday, January 30, 2023 8:30 am - Sunday, February 12, 2023 11:59 pm EST (GMT -05:00)

Location: Online (LEARN and Zoom)

Facilitator: Kristin Brown (CTE)


While many of us want to include more interactive techniques in our teaching, we are often unsure of which activities to use and how to best implement them in our lectures, labs, or tutorials. In this module, we’ll explore which activities work best for the different learning preferences we explored in CTE4068: Understanding the Learner. At the live session in Zoom we will consider how to choose, plan, troubleshoot, and facilitate interactive techniques for different disciplines and classrooms.
