What to Do When You're Not Lecturing: Engaging Students in the Classroom

Centre for Teaching and Learning Workshop
Tuesday, September 19, 2017 - 12:00 PM to 1:30 PM
Durham Campus
160, Conference Room
Centre for Teaching and Learning Workshop

Lectures are necessary at a university; and when done well, they’re a fine way to deliver a lot of information to a large group. But they don’t always match students’ needs. In this workshop, we’ll discuss ways to structure a class, so that lecturing doesn’t become our default or singular classroom activity.  After a discussion of foundational adult learning theory, we’ll talk about ways to put that theory to good use, so that students are engaged in their own learning.

Facilitator:  Joel Baetz, English Literature
