The Active Learning Institute helps faculty deepen learning and increase student motivation for all students in their classrooms by using active learning techniques proven successful at Duke and elsewhere. Participants will share teaching experiences with other faculty and practice with ideas from the pedagogical literature to help them redesign activities in a course.

Participants who complete the program are eligible for a stipend to be paid to a faculty research account. Participants are also encouraged to make a brief presentation about an active learning activity they used in a class in an Active Learning Roundtable session to be scheduled in Fall 2022.
