Two Faculty honored at Active Learning Summit

Fuad Elhage with Hairy Dawg

The University of Georgia hosted its inaugural Active Learning Summit to celebrate how this method of learning is already changing instruction across campus and to explore ways to expand that culture in the future. Approximately 270 participants gathered at the Tate Student Center on Feb. 14 for the event.

The Active Learning Initiative builds on existing programs such as the Center for Teaching and Learning’s Active Learning Summer Institute with the goal of growing active learning at UGA across three strategic areas: instructor development, student engagement and classroom enhancement.

During the opening ceremony, Vice President for Instruction Marisa Pagnattaro presented 91 instructors with certificates for completing the Active Learning Summer Institute between 2018 and 2022. More than 68,000 UGA students have been impacted by the redesigned courses taught by instructors who have participated in the institute.

Fuad Elhage, Lecturer of Spanish, and Catherine Simpson, Senior Lecturer of Spanish & Supervisor of Spanish Teaching Assistants, were honored in this ceremony.
