Creativity and Engagement in Online Psychology Courses
Active pedagogy, engaged learning, and creative online strategies are important tools for instructors who want to move their classrooms into the 21st century (Morton, 2007). This INTRODUCTORY workshop will help instructors rethink and redesign their own classroom materials for use in a highly interactive and high- quality online environment. (Participants are asked to bring a course syllabus for use in the workshop.) Program directors and administrators of training programs who seek to meet accreditation demands for learning outcomes may also find the workshop helpful.
