For STEM - based courses that require problem-solving, real-time digital ink can provide a better interface to support active learning in the classroom than pre-made PowerPoint presentations. When lecture notes are delivered through OneNote, they can be sent directly to a student's cell phone or laptop in real-time. This workshop provides instructors with the opportunity to promote student engagement by incorporating active exercises into their classroom. They will receive a hands-on introduction to the use of OneNote to deliver their lecture material, and will be tasked with creating short active learning exercises that can be used in the classroom. 

 Learning Objectives:

This workshop will:

  • Summarize educational research findings that support the use of OneNote in the classroom
