Engaging Classrooms Week

Banner for Emma Email - no dates

Join us April 12-16, 2021!

We are excited to provide Engaging Classrooms Week in a virtual* format this year. The idea behind this week is to provide a space for faculty to observe others in their discipline and in the greater Sam Houston community that are engaging in active learning in their classrooms.

*There is one classroom that is not equipped for Zoom/video calls so this class will host observers face-to-face. The class is Biology 2403: Human Anatomy and Physiology I with Olga Minich which will take place on Wednesday from 11:00-11:50. Space is limited to the first 15 registrants.
