Overcome the Obstacles in Teaching Large Classes

Almost any educator will say that reaching students so that they feel connected to their instructor, to the course material, and to fellow students fosters an ideal learning environment. With the right approaches, you can attain these goals in large classes.

Using these techniques specifically designed for large classes, educators will more easily manage their workload while igniting student interest.

This online seminar reveals effective strategies for success that can be applied to almost any large class in any discipline. Explore how to spur in-class participation, make connections with and between students, and generate meaningful comments on assignments and assessments in large classes for a rewarding education experience.

Learning Goals to Help You Grow

Showing faculty members new pedagogical approaches for large classes can help them manage the classroom with greater authority. Instead of feeling lost or unheard in an overflowing, auditorium-type classroom, students will also gain from these new methodologies by developing a deeper interest in their studies and better personal interactions with class members.

After viewing this online seminar, participants will be able to do the following:

  • Have a working knowledge of active learning in a large-class setting
  • Apply the “Know, Feel, and Do” model of active learning
  • Set up grading rubrics for students and teaching assistants
  • Provide personal, peer, and automated student feedback through creative course designs

Educators who understand how to turn their large-section classrooms into intimate learning spaces will more readily fulfill their teaching goals. And your students will walk away feeling more enriched and respected.
