Loren Rye, UNL Pixel Lab

The popular "speed sessions" where instructors share teaching strategies in short 5-minute presentations have been moved to an online poster presentation format for this fall's symposium. Please browse the 'posters,' watch the video presentations and ask questions, comment, and share your own examples in the comments section on each page. Because these pages are public, the comments will be moderated and poster presenters will respond to inquiries when the comments are posted.

Active Learning Online: Peer Instruction using Group Exams
