Description (no more than 300 words)
This lecture-discussion, part of the #IEW2019 will be facilitated by Dr Rekha Srinivasan, American Fulbright-Nehru Scholar 2019 and senior instructor in the Department of Chemistry at Case Western Reserve University.
Undergraduate education in India has undergone rapid expansion with the education sector valued at USD $91 billion in 2018. This explosion in the education sector is projected to continue this upward trend with India’s increasing youth population. Dr. Srinivasan’s research project identifies current teaching practices and barriers faced for implementing teaching innovation in host institutions. She is then applying a plan-do-check-act (PDCA cycle) philosophy by mentoring host educators to redesign and implement active learning classrooms. She is assessing the effectiveness of novel methods and repeating the cycle to optimize best teaching practices.
The lecture-discussion is tailored to STEMM Faculty and will include ideas around integrating active learning strategies in the classroom, using some common and simple active learning strategies in teaching and instructional technologies to support the use of active learning.
