ENGAGING AND EVALUATING STUDENTS IN LARGE LECTURES

Lucy Chester, Associate Professor of History and International Affairs

We will discuss techniques for encouraging discussion in courses with 400 students or more, including "quick thinks," the use of amplification to ensure that everyone can hear what's being said, and how to move around the room.  Dealing with the grading burden that a large class brings is another important concern, and we'll talk about the use of grading rubrics to convey expectations to students, make grading more consistent, and reduce grading time.

The FTEP Sumposia are designed and provided for our instructional faculty members. 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.

Wednesday March 6, 3:00-4:00 pm

This event will be held in ATLAS 200
