Active Learning at Dalhousie Symposium

Friday, September 21
10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.
MacDonald Building, University Hall

As Dalhousie enters its final year of our current Strategic Directions, the institution continues to focus on how the Dalhousie community can support student success and retention through the adoption of innovative programs and pedagogies.  As such, the AVP Academic and the Centre for Learning and Teaching are hosting an event to kick off the academic year – “Active Learning at Dalhousie”.  This short symposium is meant to offer brief introductions to a few key active learning strategies in use across the campus, and will ask the question – how do we continue to advance active learning on campus?
