Activity Blitz

Activity-based teaching and learning is an evidence-based pedagogical approach known for engaging students through participatory instruction. Each year we make a concerted effort to bring you a variety of activities our own graduate student instructors and alumni have used while teaching. Such activities, which are both creative and fun, can be readily adapted for use in almost any classroom. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do!
