Are Interactive courses the solution to better engaging today’s learners? What makes a course “Interactive”? Join Professors John LaMaster, Sheila Bradley and Kathy Kazemi in an open dialogue on what interactive courses in Calculus and other Math & Statistics courses could look like and what resources/tools it would take to tackle your students struggling with "Where do I go next?"

This webinar we will continue the conversation authors Jason Gregersen, Rachel Vincent-Finley and Herb Kunze had around maximizing the pedagogical benefits of videos in various modes of teaching to engage students and personalize their learning, and dive deeper into the benefits of interspersed assessment and activity (summative vs formative), animated graphs and instruction and dynamic visualization as interactive elements that offer direction and drive critical thinking skills in an interactive course.

What Will Be Covered:

  • Breaking free from static textbook limitations with Animated Algebra and Dynamic Visualization.
  • Maximizing comprehension and retention with pedagogically engaging videos and resources for students.
  • Instructor control and customization: Ability to separate learning and assessment.
  • Time-saving benefits of interactive activities built into lessons, fostering engaging dialogues, metacognition and critical thinking to make connections between abstract concepts and the graph by visualization."
