What Works and What Doesn't When Teaching Large Classes?

You donít have to compromise your expectations when you teach large classes, but you might need to alter your approach. Learn the ways to manage a large class and make it feel smaller, more intimate, and more manageable in just 20 minutes.

Your Discipline 101.

At many universities, thatís a large class.

Biology. Algebra. World History. Introductory Psychology.

It doesnít really matter what the subject is. If it has 101 in the title, itís going to be big.

And you know exactly what itís like. Students file in and out two or three times a week. It is hard to keep track of who is or isnít showing up. You never really even get to know their names. Itís also a lot to manage.

Giving out too many assignments creates a crushing workload, so there arenít as many opportunities for you to assess learning and to ensure that students are on track.

Itís not what most of us would consider a recipe for success.

The discipline doesnít really matter. Sizeable classes present sizeable challenges regardless of the subject matter.

That doesnít mean that it is impossible to do it well.

It just means you have to be strategic about everything from class design and content delivery to class flow, assignments, and grading.

If you want to know how to do that, youíll want to watch What Works & What Doesnít Work When Teaching a Large Class?,a Magna 20-Minute Mentor with Brigham Young University associate professor Kenneth L. Alford and assistant professor Tyler Griffin.

In just 20 minutes Alford and Griffin cover numerous proven teaching strategies that work well in large groups (and point out a few that donít).
