Active learning approaches have been shown to enhance knowledge transfer and increase the effectiveness of adult education by emphasizing critical thinking, analytical skills, and hands-on learning. In 2016, PRIM&R convened two Train-the-Trainers Institutes (TTIs) for IACUC leaders and educators to learn how active learning pedagogy can enhance the effectiveness of their IACUC training programs. The TTIs were developed and hosted as part of the Interagency Collaborative Animal Research Education (ICARE) Project. The TTIs were developed and hosted as part of the Interagency Collaborative Animal Research Education (ICARE) Project. The training modules participants created as a part of the program are now available for download.

During this complimentary webinar, two IACUC professionals who attended the ICARE TTIs will share their experience at the TTI and discuss how the techniques they learned have shaped their own training programs. Speakers will:

  • Provide an introduction to active learning and review the core learning objectives of the ICARE TTI
  • Share an example of successful implementation of active learning techniques in their own IACUC training programs
  • Examine the barriers and challenges to implementing active learning methodology, including achieving institutional buy-in, logistics, and incorporation into online settings
Seminar Objectives
  • Understand the basics of active learning pedagogy
  • Understand the benefits and challenges of implementing active learning techniques in an IACUC training program
