Literature demonstrates that students learn more, in terms of memorizing and problem solving, when they are actively involved in the educational process. Additionally, providing students with retrieval-based exercises further promotes understanding and retention. As such, professors need to find ways to transition from dispensing information to building classrooms where students actively engage in the material, collaborate with each other and participate in activities that require them to retrieve learned information. This seminar provides the evidence for and the guiding principles of active learning and retrieval. Participants will leave with several low-tech teaching innovations for incorporating active learning and retrieval exercises in their classrooms and labs.
