At Cengage Learning, we know that instructors of all types are always on the lookout for new ways to engage students and transform them into active learners.

That’s why, in October of 2015, we expanded our partnership with the National Institute for Staff and Organizational Development (NISOD), a membership organization committed to promoting and celebrating excellence in teaching, learning, and leadership at community and technical colleges, to co-host a series of webinars, podcasts, and blog posts covering professional development topics for adjunct faculty and administrators.

Active learning

Our most recent webinar hosted through our partnership with NISOD, titled “Koala to Kangaroo: Getting Your Students Hopping With Active Learning” was presented by Shawn Orr, our own Faculty Partner.

And it’s been a hit! The webinar provides new ways to engage your students and transform them into active learners.

During this fun and interactive webinar, you’ll learn icebreaker activities and active-learning strategies that increase student engagement, encourage higher-level thinking, enliven classroom discussions, and enhance learning in the classroom.

You’ll leave with practical strategies you can implement immediately to move students from passive observers to active participants in their education.
