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