Stop lecturing about active learning! Integrating good teaching practices into ASEE conference sessions

As a leading organization in the field of engineering education, ASEE and its members continue to support advances in engineering education scholarship and research. We have helped to change learning environments in many engineering classrooms to support more active and engaging experiences for our students. How might we explore incorporating a similar range of presentation modes and styles at ASEE?

Join us at the 2019 Interdivisional Town Hall to discuss strategies for changing the culture of the ASEE Annual Conference by incorporating more active and engaging sessions, such as the recent trend toward having Postcard Sessions. In this spirit, and in keeping with the tone of past meetings, the Town Hall Meeting will be an interactive workshop that will cross divisions.
