The White House’s Office of Science and Technology Policy announced a nationwide Active Learning Day on Tuesday, Oct. 25. All educators in science, technology, engineering and mathematics fields (STEM) are encouraged to spend at least 10 minutes using an active-learning technique in their classrooms. Get ideas to begin or increase active learning in your classroom on this resource page provided by  Educational Technology and the Center for Educational Research and Teaching Innovation (CERTI).

The Association of American Colleges & Universities encourages all STEM faculty nationwide to participate on Oct. 25. Active learning activities can range from having students talk with a peer before answering a question posed by the instructor or using small groups for discussion while solving a problem, to more complex, hands-on activities.
