Active Learning Specialist Course
Fizika's approach to active learning is a synthesis of research and best practices in the disciplines of health and physical literacy, educational neuroscience and cognitive psychology. 
The Active Learning Specialist Course prepares practioners to apply these concepts in a systematic way to improve the learning potential of their students and fellow employees.

For a quick overview of the Active Learning Specialist Course, watch this video.


What does an Active Learning Specialist do?

Active Learning Specialists tailor interventions to a specific learning need or group of students. The Active Learning Specialist forms a group of stakeholders to assist with the development, implementation, and evaluation of the intervention (Active Learning Plan).

The Active Learning Specialist works collaboratively with an Active Learning Team to:

  • Define the roles of each person on the team
  • Assign responsibilities and milestones
  • Identify the needs to be addressed by active learning intervention
  • Demonstrate how the Active Learning Plan will enhance student engagement
  • Provide training to members of the Team to understand research and best practices
  • Communicate internally to stakeholders and externally to community
  • Continuously record improvements (outcomes); allow for plan adjustments

Active Learning Specialists are invited to join our online community of best practice professionals to share ideas, and learn from each other. Fizika manages two online communities for Active Learning Specialists – on Facebook and on LinkedIn.
