Active Learning Guide

SCL films are open educational resources (OER) that provide great opportunities to explore new concepts, expand on existing knowledge, engage in deep thinking, and even develop or hone new skills like critical thinking. An example of how this can be done is described in the following slides presentation.

SCL Senior Director Shannon Behrman presented these slides as part of a webinar about using visualization tools to promote active learning for the American Society for Cell Biology Education Committee in May 2023.
