Online: Active Learning and the Internet
In this hands-on workshop, we'll use the Internet to enhance WAC's language-rich active learning techniques and to build learning communities. Participants will practice strategies they can duplicate in their classrooms across the curriculum, including student collaborations and student-constructed Web projects. We'll also explore Internet professional communities. Participants should have some experience using email and the World Wide Web.
