This workshop will provide strategies for teaching large classes with a learning-centered approach. Large classes present challenges for instructors and learners alike, and many instructors struggle with how to scale up the active learning pedagogy that is effective in their smaller classes. Participants will discuss their own challenges in this regard, consider the literature on effective teaching practices for large classes, and work together to identify solutions to the challenges discussed.

Rather than simply listening to presenters, the sessions will be very interactive, and there will be time during the two days dedicated to apply the theories and research to your own courses.

Some of the topics discussed will include:

Dr. Huston states: “Men and women approach decisions differently, though not necessarily in the ways we have been led to believe. Stress? It actually makes women more focused. Confidence? A healthy dose of self-questioning leads to much stronger decisions. And despite popular misconceptions, women are just as decisive as men — though they may pay a price for it.” This book club will explore how the decision making process differs between men and women, and we will apply those insights to the classroom.

In addition to having been the QEP for the last ten years, Global Learning is also one of the High-Impact Practices. Study abroad is usually an intensive way of promoting global learning, but you do not have to send your students abroad to promote global understanding. In collaboration with the Division of Global Affairs, this workshop will unpack global learning as a pedagogy to understand why it is so powerful, what it can do for your students, and how you can incorporate it in your courses and/or get involved with the DGA programs and initiatives.

"One cannot expect positive results from an educational . . . program which fails to respect the particular view of the world held by the people." Join us for a discussion of Paulo Freire's classic book, The Pedagogy of the Oppressed, and contemplate how the world view of our students influences the way they receive and perceive their education.

One of the ten “high-impact practices” is to explore “difficult differences ” such as racial, ethnic, and gender inequality, or continuing struggles for human rights, freedom, and power. This exploration is crucial in today’s multicultural society, but while this pedagogy has empirically documented impact in the classroom and can push students to develop critical thinking skills, it can also backfire if the exploration is not effectively structured.
