Active Learning Week

Active Learning Week was initiated in 2016 by the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy as a national effort to incorporate active teaching and learning strategies in STEM classrooms. Now, it is a joint initiative of the  Association of American Colleges and Universities , the  American Association for the Advancement of Sciences , and  100Kin10  – focusing on ensuring that all active learning practices are culturally responsive and fully grounded in the lived experiences of students of all races/ethnicities, genders, sexual orientations, and socioeconomic statuses.

Join Active Learning Week by pledging to integrate culturally responsive active learning into your classroom, institution, and/or organization.

  • Spend at least 10 minutes implementing a culturally responsive STEM teaching strategy that promotes active learning in your classroom;
  • Identify innovative ways to deepen your departmental/institutional commitment to inclusive STEM higher education reform;
  • Tell a friend! Reach out to at least one colleague and engage in dialogue around what they can do to implement similar strategies in their classroom;
  • Promote Active Learning Week on your campus. Receive an adaptable flyer you can edit to include your logo and local ALW events to demonstrate your leadership in promoting active learning;
