Active Learning Week 2018 (Oct. 22 - Oct. 26)
“The best teaching method is to have students put in effort to learn things themselves. You can’t become an athlete by watching someone play.” - Ben Bederson
Active Learning Week is an annual call to instructors to promote active learning in their classrooms
