Award-Winning Faculty Series: Active Learning with Large Classes: Strategies That Work Better With 100 Students Than 10 Students with John Knox
Park Hall 265
1:00 pm – 3:00 pm
John Knox, a 2013 Richard B. Russell Award for Excellence in Undergraduate Teaching winner, has taught over 4,500 UGA undergraduates—most of them in large introductory science lectures with 100-300 students apiece. How can instructors make these “large lectures” engaging for the students? In this session, Dr. Knox, a geography professor, will demonstrate several different active learning approaches he has developed that take advantage of both the large space of large lecture halls as well as the large number of students in these classes.
