Mike Forder, Director of eLearning for VCU Nurse Anesthesia, created this resource when he worked at the VCU Alt lab.  The purpose of the site is to provide instructors of large classes with tools that can be used to integrate active learning technologies.  Visit the site to learn about instructional applications and best practices for engaging students in this setting. Active Learning benefits students as follows:

  • Provides a way for the instructor to gauge student understanding
  • Fosters student to student, student to instructor, and student to class discussion
  • Promotes student ownership of their learning experience
  • Presents opportunities for response-driven instructional adjustments
