The STEM Gateway program at the University of New Mexico hosts a faculty workshop on Peer Learning Facilitators and Active Learning in the Classroom Monday, March 10 from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m. in the basement of the University College Advising Center, room B24. The workshop is intended for those interested in learning how the PLF program and other active learning techniques are incorporated into STEM classrooms across the university.
The PLF program is one of four programs under UNM's STEM Gateway grant that focuses resources on undergraduate science and math courses with traditionally low student success rates. The program supports faculty members who use active learning pedagogy in their classrooms by pairing them with expert peer learners.
The workshop will begin with a PLF instructor panel, who will take turns discussing their active learning methods, followed by a PLF student panel comprised of UNM students who will share their experience with the program. Questions from the audience will be taken as well.
To RSVP for the workshop, contact Mary Cianflone at email@example.com by Wednesday, March 5.
