The University of Lynchburg Teaching and Learning Center is in full gear, holding frequent workshops to help professors master new, research-backed, technology-powered teaching techniques.
Dr. Virginia Cylke recently led a workshop about using active learning techniques. The College has several active learning classrooms where students can write on the walls, collaborate in the cloud with the help of Chromecast-enabled monitors, and easily rearrange the room thanks to wheeled tables and chairs. Her workshop focused on a variety of methods teachers can use to break up lectures more with learning activities that get students to move around and work together.
Her workshop caught the attention of The News & Advance, which published a story about active learning methods on Wednesday.
