Upcoming Teaching Workshop: Interactive Lectures (Feb 16)

Posted by on Wednesday, February 9, 2011 in Events.

Time & Date: 4:10—5:30 p.m., Wednesday, February 16
Location:  CFT Workshop Space, Center for Teaching
Facilitators: Manya Whitaker, Graduate Teaching Fellow, CFT
Audience: Graduate and Professional Students and Post-docs

Given that students have an attention span of around 15 to 20 minutes and that university classes are scheduled for around 50 or 75 minutes, instructors must do something to control their students’ attention. This workshop will present practical strategies for breaking up lectures with activities that help keep students engaged and foster active learning.  We welcome instructors who are new to lecturing or those who want to reinvigorate their practice.
