This is a synchronous online workshop using Zoom.

You have a large class and are wondering how to engage them.  What kind of active learning and interaction can you do within a lecture hall with fixed seats and students in many rows? Is community even possible? What can you do to sustain attendance and engagement?

Course enrollment above forty or fifty students creates unique challenges for instructors. Many instructors struggle with the following common challenges in larger classes:

  • Engaging students in learning
  • Creating and embedding interactive activities
  • Assessing learning during class through low stakes assessments
  • Getting students to attend regularly
  • Getting students to prepare for class by doing readings, homework, and assignments
  • Students leaving class early or arriving late

This workshop introduces ten practical strategies that you can begin using this fall. The Ten Essentials for Student Success in Large Classes succeed when the strategies are embedded and connect with all parts of the course. We will examine the ten essentials and each participant will be encouraged to select two of the ten strategies to embed into their own course this fall. If you have a large class and the syllabus, have it available for easy access!
