What to Do When You're Not Lecturing: Engaging Students in the Classroom
- Tuesday, September 19, 2017 - 12:00 PM to 1:30 PM
- Durham Campus
- 160, Conference Room
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
