Action Learning in the Classroom

Action learning, an interactive dialectic-based approach, is an educational method that engages students in the process of defining, redefining, and solving real-life problems. This webinar identifies strategies to create a classroom experience that enables critical thinking and engages students through team-focused learning. Action learning requires direct participation, so join the webinar facilitators as they demonstrate action learning “in action.”

Collaboration: Connect With Me

In our global world, what methods do we use to communicate and are those methods effective? There is a saying that mobile devices allow us to connect with people half a world away, while ignoring people just across the table. As instructors, we challenge our students to communicate with each other in on-campus classes, but how do we connect them in online environments? What steps can we take to help students continue those efforts in communication after the semester ends? How do we encourage the development of soft skills needed to be successful in the corporate world? Join this webinar and collaborate on ways to connect students with us, each other, and course content!
