Are you worried that active learning is incompatible with lecture-style instruction? That you have to choose between one and the other? In this workshop, we address these concerns, investigating a variety of "lecture breaks" that can be easily integrated between lecture segments without significant cost in instructional time. Along the way, we will examine the benefits of making lectures more interactive, in terms of student attention and recall.
