Active Teaching Lab

About Active Teaching Lab

Active Teaching Lab provides instructors an opportunity to learn from other educators. Each month a UWM instructor shares how they utilized a cool tool or a teaching strategy in a course and the outcome: what worked, what was hard, what was learned through the process, and what they’d do differently.

After the short presentation, attendees will learn how to use the tool or strategy shared and have the opportunity to unpack the pedagogy informing it.

Active Teaching Lab is held the first Wednesday of the Month, 9:00 – 10:00am – in B73 Engelmann Hall and live via Zoom!

REGISTRATION: The Labs are open to all. Registration is not required, but is appreciated

LIVE: Not able to make it to a Lab? Fear not! All Labs will be recorded and handouts will be made available electronically below.

The explosion of accessible AI has reshaped the realm of learning, particularly affecting undergraduate writing-intensive courses. Looming over all instructors is the question: if AI can write a “B-leve” paper, why should I expect students to struggle through the process of actually writing?

Dive into the future with Shevaun Watson, Maureen McKnight, and David Kocik on December 6th, as they present several potent strategies cultivated by writing specialists in the Department of English. Decrease cheating dilemmas, amplify writing dexterity, and steer students toward higher learning outcomes. Engage in hands-on experimentation during the session, empowering you to forge innovative activities next semester!
