Description: In traditional approaches, instructors present general, theoretical concepts first, solve example problems next, and leave applications for students to solve during homework. Inductive learning turns that sequence around. Starting with a problem or question serves to engage students, and motivate learning the concepts and techniques. In this (completely revamped) session, you will examine examples of inductive learning strategies. You will then have an opportunity to consider how to apply them in your own classroom.
