Abstract
In this session, we will explore the concept of active learning in our classrooms. Rather than focus on academic or scholarly definitions, we will think pragmatically about the idea of first creating an engaged classroom as a way to activate learning. Participants will be challenged to consider what does an engaged learner look or act like? Are our lectures as active as we think they are? How can we transform them from passive to active? Participants will  generate one or two things to try in their own classrooms.
