Event Description 

Dr. Annalisa Crannell, Mathematics Professor at Franklin & Marshall College

Title: Inquiry and Engagement in an interactive classroom

Abstract: Interactive engagement in the classroom can take many forms: Inquiry Based Learning (IBL), Think-Pair-Share, Flipped Classrooms, and more. Beyond being a trendy pedagogical innovation, interactive engagement has demonstrated improved outcomes in student learning and retention in mathematics and science. In this seminar, we will explore ways to structure Inquiry Based Learning on a scale from a single activity to an entire course. In addition, we will learn how the speaker wound up using IBL to teach a class on isomorphisms of quotient groups in a bagel shop.
