Teaching Large Enrollment Courses

Wednesday, October 14, 2015 - 08:00 to 09:30

6137 McKeldin (Special Events Room)

Presented by the Undergraduate Studies Faculty Fellows.

Are you teaching a high enrollment course for the first time? Or are you an experienced teacher of large classes? The Undergraduate Studies Faculty Fellows will work with participants to develop ideas that will help instructors deal with the challenges arising from the large lecture environment including: the classroom management necessary when working with so many students; how to engage students who are disconnected and feel anonymous; and the implementation of active learning methods. Participants should come away with several ideas about how to enhance the learning environment for large enrollment classes and an appreciation of the opportunities afforded through teaching these classes.
