Description

AAEE2019 Conference Workshop (Conference Attendees Only)

Stop lecturing about active learning: integrating good teaching practices into AAEE conference sessions


Although the research favouring active learning strategies over traditional instruction is compelling,
many conference presentations nevertheless take a very didactic approach. Indeed, much of the
research presented at AAEE Conferences describes different modifications we have made to students’
traditional learning experiences to make them more engaging and effective.

Inspired by the session of the same name held at this year’s American Society for Engineering
Education (ASEE) Conference, in this workshop we will explore different strategies for implementing
active learning approaches in our conference presentations. Additionally, we will workshop suggestions
for alternative presentation formats for future AAEE conferences.

OVERVIEW OF WORKSHOP
In this workshop, we will brainstorm, share, and discuss different techniques for making our AAEE
presentations more engaging and audience-focused. These will then be compiled and subsequently
shared with the AAEE community.

ACTIVITIES
In both plenary and small-group discussions, participants will have opportunities to brainstorm, share,
and build on different ideas for making conference presentations more interactive and engaging.
Discussion will also focus on how different contextual issues can inform which strategies are most
effective in different situations.

TARGET AUDIENCE
Any researcher considering presenting at AAEE or other conferences in the future.

OUTCOMES
Participants will be more familiar with a greater repertoire of skills and strategies for making their
conference presentations more engaging. Conversely, AAEE will develop a clearer understanding of
delegates’ preferences regarding presentation formats.

KEYWORDS
Active learning, presentations, conferences, lecturing

PRESENTERS’ BACKGROUNDS
All presenters are experienced engineering educators and researchers, and are currently serving on
the AAEE Executive Committee.
