Teach & Share: Active learning Exercises in a Recitation Course

Active learning Exercises in a Recitation Course. In Dr. Amulya Tatachar’s (PharmD, BCACP) courses, she implements a variety of active learning exercises including games (Jeopardy, Taboo), Peerwise, and case-based exercises to reinforce and apply concepts. She also compares traditional case-based exercises to PeerWise on student performance and perception. Come and hear how she succeeded with these activities. Please contact Dr. Tatachar if you are interested in presenting a workshop on active learning for your department or college, or for further questions on her presentation content.  Amulya.Tatachar@unthsc.edu
