MUIC Holds Seminar-Workshop on “Effective Teaching and Active Learning”

In its continuing pursuit of academic excellence, Mahidol University International College (MUIC) held a seminar-workshop for teachers entitled “Effective Teaching and Active Learning: Reflection and Practice” on November 16, 2019 at the Salaya Pavilion and Training Center.

This seminar-workshop introduced the participants to the pedagogical ideals of active learning and project-based learning. It offered participants a chance to reflect on their successful teaching experiences to date, how they align with the principles of active learning, and how they can apply such principles in a several-step process to become even more effective educators.

Aside from officials and faculty members of MUIC’s Humanities and Language Division (HLD), 25 teachers from various schools signed up for the seminar-workshop that featured Dr. Paul Wadden as guest speaker and workshop facilitator. Dr. Wadden is a senior lecturer in English for the Liberal Arts Program at International Christian University, Tokyo. He is the author of many articles on language-teaching and education, more than 50 textbooks, and the editor of “A Handbook for Teaching English at Japanese Colleges and Universities” (Oxford University Press) and “Teaching English at Japanese Universities: A New Handbook” (Routledge). From 2017 to 2018 he was a visiting scholar of the Program in Writing and Rhetoric Program at Stanford University.

The Intercultural Studies and Languages Program of HLD and the Academic Services Group jointly organized the event.
