The Active Learning (TAL) Fellows Program

The Office for Faculty Development is pleased to announce a new initiative for supporting faculty across the curriculum who wish to build their repertoire of active learning techniques. These techniques can transform students from passive receivers of content to engaged makers of knowledge and in the process transform an instructor’s understanding of teaching and learning as dynamic, reciprocal processes.   

An earlier version of this initiative focused on preparing faculty to teach in the Technology-Enhanced Active Learning classroom in University Hall. TAL will still include training for specific active learning classrooms on campus; however, its focus will widen to include innovative techniques generally applicable to UMB classrooms, whether one is teaching a large lecture, a small discussion class or the many options in between. The program facilitator will be Michelle McIntyre, eLearning and Instructional Support.

Please consider applying if you would like to:

TEAL Classroom

University Hall (Room 75A) has a unique new teaching space, the 63-seat Technology-Enhanced Active Learning (TEAL) classroom. The physical layout and technological setup of the room are designed to facilitate student-to-student, student-to-teacher, and classroom-wide collaboration.
