Plato's Roundtable

Collaborative Learning

collab panel(From Right to Left) Professors Stets, Cardullo and Maduro

A few of our most recent distinguished guests are Jan Stets, Professor of Sociology, Richard Cardullo, Professor of Biology and Morris Maduro, Assistant Professor of Biology. Each of our panelists is an advocate for the use of Active Learning techniques in the classroom. Active learning is a cluster of teaching methodologies that emphasize interaction and the participation of the student in the learning process. Advocates of Active Learning argue that the active engagement of materials and concepts by the students enhances their retention, and assists them with building the cores skills required within their respective disciplines. Supporters of Active Learning cite scientific studies on the effectiveness of different learning techniques to back their claims. In our panel discussion, Professors Stets, Cardullo and Maduro share their experiences and knowledge gleaned from years of employing these methodologies in a variety of classroom environments.
