Motivating and Engaging Students in the Classroom: Advancing the Understanding and Applications of How Students Learn

This session will demonstrate common aspects of all learning and how to use those concepts to motivate and engage students as they acquire new skills and knowledge.  Included will be rethinking some current educational trends with an emphasis on what aspects of these trends will likely hold up, and which trends are likely to falter.  The emphasis will be on applications that can be quickly put to use.  

At the end of this session, participants will be able to: 

1. Describe the current understanding of the effectiveness of lectures relative to active learning
2. Explain the critical aspects of a Flipped Classroom approach
