The purpose of this symposium is to bring together practitioners of a variety of student-centered pedagogies (such as PBL, PLTL, POGIL, or TBL), from high school through university level. Emphasis will be placed on those approaches that require students to be actively engaged on a regular basis, with a focus on improving process skills such as communication, teamwork, critical thinking, or problem solving. Presentations that contain assessment of these student-centered approaches are especially welcome.

Presider: Rob Whitnell, Guilford College
