High Structure Active Learning: Change the Face(s) of Science Education
February 21 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm
Featuring Michael Crimmins, Mary Ann Smith Distinguished Professor of Chemistry and Executive Director, the Chancellor’s Science Scholars
Active learning can be used to engage all types of students. Nowhere has adopting this practice changed teaching more than in the sciences. Michael Crimmins, winner of the 2016 Board of Governors’ Award for Excellence in Teaching, will discuss the redesign of introductory level science courses at UNC and how the new courses have impacted student performance and student perception of science.
