Effective College Teaching Workshop


Presented by:  
Richard Felder and Rebecca Brent

May 12, 2014 to May 13, 2014


The two day workshop will cover:

  • How do students learn? How do teachers teach? What often goes wrong in the process?
  • How do I plan a course?  What do I do on the first day?
  • How can I be a better lecturer?
  • How can I get students actively involved on learning? How canI get them to learn from each other (cooperative learning)?
  • How can I teach students to solve problems creatively?
  • How can I create tests that are both rigorous and fair?
  • What student-related problems am I likely to face (classroom management, emotional crises, cheating, etc.)? How should I deal with them?
