You can shift from solely a lecture-based course to a “modified lecture” format using Kolb’s Experiential Learning Cycle as a template for designing each course session. Kolb’s Cycle is a means towards the end of actively engaging students in achieving the outcomes you intend! Using the four phases of Kolb’s Learning Cycle as a template for designing any course session,  you can surrounded brief lecture or guest speaker segments with a wide array of strategies that prompt students to question, makes sense of, and apply new learning.  Kolb’s Cycle aligns well with how the brain achieves deeper learning and can be applied to any discipline. Multiple disciplinary examples will be provided. Applying Kolb’s Cycle begins with specific learning outcomes for each course session or module. Bring your syllabus and interact with colleagues and the CETL Booklet, Kolb’s Experiential Learning Cycle – yours to take home!
