Kicking Lecture to the Curb! Even Large Lecture Classes Can Experience Deeper Learning Using Active, Gamified, Project-Based Learning Strategies
Concurrent Session 2
In this session, Dr. Bray will demonstrate how she re-designed a 120-student Intro to Exercise Physiology course with a high DWF rate into an instant success (over 100 A's) kicking lecture to the curb and using active, gamified, group project-based learning strategies.
In this session, Dr. Bray will demonstrate how she re-designed a 120-student Intro to Exercise Physiology course with a high DWF rate into an instant success (101 - A’s, 18 - B’s, 1 - C, 0 - D’s, 1 - F) using active, gamified, project-based learning strategies.
Participants will learn how to use gamified learning in lieu of lecturing to spark excitement, drive up engagement, and increase persistence in every student; how to develop group project-based learning to situate learners in the world of professionals in the field. Participants will experience the use of Kahoot! and Nearpod first hand. They will walk away with course design details, Kahoot!s, Nearpods, real group project samples, example project guidelines, and project assignment sheets you can modify and use in your class (large or small) right away.
These strategies increased student engagement, satisfaction, and success and I have the data to prove it! Come see it for yourself!
