As engineering leadership programs grow and evolve, we have an opportunity to share and learn from each other. Most of the engineering leadership programs contain elements of active learning strategies as part of the pedagogy for the courses. Students who are engaged in meaningful activities with inquiry and reflection can maximize their potential for learning and growth. Some of these strategies are longer and develop over the semester and others are short activities designed to meet specific objectives. The moderators for this workshop will describe some of the active learning strategies employed in their programs and will each demonstrate an activity or exercise with the participation of workshop attendees. This can create some great takeaways to for participants to adapt to the pedagogy of their own programs. The moderators from several universities will each describe and lead a group activity and then debrief the group regarding reflection and hints for effectively facilitating the activity.
