Faculty came together to share ideas about how to best engage students and promote active learning. They learned to incorporate active learning “high-impact practices” into everyday teaching. Strategies for redesigning the way a challenging concept or topic are taught were explored and resources were shared to expand faculty repertoire of strategies to promote students’ active engagement in learning.
