Share Active Learning Strategies for Large Lecture Classes

Event Details

What is the first thing you think of when thinking about large lecture courses? A sea of lost faces? Students falling asleep, facebooking, texting or cheating on exams? Large lecture courses are sometimes treated as the neglected sibling or a "necessary evil" in higher education. 

What if it were possible to make large lecture courses more engaging while maintaining a sustainable workload for faculty and staff members who run them? What lessons can we learn from MOOC's that might be applicable back at home on campus?

This session will feature faculty speakers who will share some techniques they have used in the large lecture setting along with the World Cafe method to generate dialog, discussion and new ideas about ways to improve student engagement. Participants should be prepared to explore and engage with the themes of the day in an active, welcoming, and supportive atmosphere.
