Lecture attendance and engagement is a challenge for all of us. Join us for an interactive workshop exploring how to motivate students to attend class and how to make the most of that time for their learning. We will share strategies and examples of how to promote active, engaged, and collaborative learning experiences, and hear your ideas about how to put this into practice in your discipline.”
