Large event activation

Active learning methods promote motivation and sustained learning. Students should be involved in their own learning process beyond listening and transferring information. There will be a particular focus on activating methods for large groups. The idea is to develop the classical lecture format. When lecturing to large groups in lecture halls, it is usually a challenge for you as a teacher to stimulate interaction with the students, to stay in touch, and to encourage active learning. Contrast the traditional 90-minute format with evidence that the average student's attention span is around 15 minutes. Studies show that active learning can increase learning, develop higher-order skills, and lead to greater student engagement.

    Active plenum

    The active plenum is a concept for active participation of students in the teaching-learning process. The aim of the idea is for students to work together to solve tasks and apply subject-specific ways of thinking and working. By having students take on parts of the teaching role, teaching becomes something that teachers and students are jointly responsible for and shape. For more information on active plenary, see this method profile.

    Silent debate/Silent discussion

    The silent debate is a method to activate and involve the participants. The participants enter a written silent dialogue. The method can be carried out as an analog version with poster boards, but also as a digital version and is therefore also suitable for events with many participants. You can find more information about the method in this method profile.

    Classroom Response Systeme (CRS)

    Class­room Re­s­pon­se Sys­te­me (CRS) sind Hilfs­mit­tel zur Ak­ti­vie­rung und Par­ti­zi­pa­ti­on von Teil­neh­mer_in­nen in Lehr­ver­an­stal­tun­gen. CRS ermögli­chen es, an­ony­me Stimm­ab­ga­ben von Stu­die­ren­den auf eine Fra­ge mit vor­ge­ge­be­nen Ant­wortmöglich­kei­ten durch mo­bi­le End­geräte zu er­fas­sen, die Da­ten an ein zen­tra­les Er­fas­sungs­gerät wei­ter­zu­lei­ten, aus­zu­wer­ten und das Er­geb­nis dy­na­misch in ei­ner di­gi­ta­len Präsen­ta­ti­on an­zu­zei­gen.
