Faculty Development Session: Active learning for student success on April 22

Please join us at noon (CST) on April 22 for “Increase Engagement and Student Learning by Activating Your Lectures,” a presentation by Dr. Adrienne Salentiny.

Join via Zoom at: This event will be recorded for later viewing.

Evidence for the benefits of active learning (AL) continues to grow, and it has become clear that any amount of AL can produce measurable positive results in learner success! Our past and recent workshops have discussed the research and explored the many active learning strategies and how many SMHS faculty have made positive changes to their curricula. At this session, join Dr. Adrienne Salentiny to learn how you too can add active learning to your lectures using low- and no-tech strategies and tools to deliver on AL’s promise within the setting of lecture-based courses.

This faculty development session is hosted by the Teaching, Learning, and Scholarship unit of Education Resources and the Office of Education and Faculty Affairs. This series, held every third Thursday of the month, showcases topics of interest to the medical and health education community and is free and open to anyone at UND. Previous faculty development sessions can be streamed from our website.

If you have any questions, would like more information, or would like to suggest a future meeting topic, please contact Adrienne Salentiny (
