2015 – 16 Lunch and Learn Series

Dr. Bruce Harris introduced the Personalized Active Learning Model (PALM) in August, 2015 at the Student Success Summit. This is a teaching and learning model that was developed by the New Faculty Training and Orientation Steering Committee, the Promoting Student Success Summit Steering Committee, and the Center for Teaching & Learning (CTL) during the summer to promote more learning-centered teaching on the DSU campus. PALM is a working model--it is a draft. We would like faculty input and feedback to improve the model so faculty members will have ownership of it. PALM is not an all-in-one (comprehensive) model that is intended to represent all teaching and learning situations or to replace what faculty may be currently using. It is not required to use this model. It is a resource that can be used to assist and help faculty members. It is intended to be used at the lesson, module, or daily class period level—it is not a macro level teaching and learning model for an entire course.
