In this workshop, we will introduce a novel active-learning rewards-based (ALRB) approach supported by a prototype system to motivate students to be more active learners. We will describe how rubrics are assigned to different active learning pedagogies to reward students for their active engagement. The ALRB approach will be demonstrated with a supporting system and rewards will be given to the audience to show how instructors can use the ALRB approach in any face-to-face, hybrid or purely virtual environment.
