Talking About Teaching

12:00 PM  - 1:00 PM
Friday Mar 31, 2017
Suite 309, DeWitt Wallace Library

Lian Duan and Daniel Kluver, Mathematics, Statistics, and Computer Science, will present "Stratification in Introductory Classes: How to Maximize Teaching Effectiveness When Students come in at all Different Levels." As educators, we want to be effective in our teaching for all our students, whether they come to class already very knowledgeable or as true beginners.  This stratification of the skills of students presents an extra challenge for educators, especially in introductory classes, which typically have a set curriculum that needs to be followed.  We worry that the class will be too boring or slow for some students, while too fast for others. We will discuss best strategies for dealing with such a diverse group of students to best engage learning while accommodating the needs of all. Come and share your own ideas.  All faculty welcome.  Lunch will be provided.
