Teaching Large Classes

Facilitated by Phoebe Young, Associate Professor of History, and Noah Finkelstein, Professor of Physics

This workshop will combine presentation, interactive group work, and open discussion to focus on several key issues for professors teaching large classes: management techniques, pedagogical approaches for promoting student engagement in large lectures, and working with teaching assistants. The goal for the session is to give new faculty both some useful and tested practices for handling large classes, as well as a sense of the range of pedagogical options they can explore and incorporate as they work to develop their teaching. 

The FTEP Symposia are designed and provided for our instructional faculty members. Participation in FTEP Workshops and Symposia is open to Professors, Associate Professors, Assistant Professors, Instructors, Senior Instructors and Scholars-in-Residence, as per your official HR Job Class.If you are planning to participate in this symposium and are in a college other than the presenter, you may plan in advance to adapt the teaching tools in this event to your discipline.

No registration required.
