Leadership in Active Learning Initiative (LALI)

The Center for Teaching, Learning and Extended Studies sponsors the Leadership in Active Learning Initiative (LALI). LALI is designed to promote student retention by focusing on instructional strategies that enhance student learning and success. Through LALI, faculty participants will:

  • Complete a refresher workshop on Promoting Active Learning
  • Create an Active Learning Action Plan – where faculty identify one Active Learning technique to integrate and propose your reflection and data collection ideas and plans
  • Document the use of the active learning in your course and reflect on the ways it impacted the learning environment and student engagement and learning
  • Gather reactions, feedback and thoughts from your students regarding the experience
  • Report on the experience, sharing information collected and proposing recommendations for future use in your own courses and others
  • Share findings and experiences with colleagues and receive recognition for your leadership in active learning
