  How to Improve the Experience of the Students and Professors in Large Classes (Pedagogy in Practice Seminar Series)  
(Academic)

In late spring 2012, the Center for Instructional Development and Educational Research (CIDER) published a new issue of Pedagogy in Practice, a publication that shares stories of Virginia Tech faculty who are engaging students in holistic and transformative educational experiences through the creation of effectual pedagogy. The CIDER Pedagogy in Practice Seminar Series is being offered to enable participants to learn more about the practices shared in the publication. This seminar will extend discussion of the pedagogy shared in the article entitled "Physics 1055-6: A Virginia Tech Signature Course Experience."

Delivering quality education in large courses (more than ~100 students), while keeping the professor's workload reasonable, is a challenging task. In this presentation, Dr. Nahum Arav will share much of the experience he and his colleagues gained in doing so on a very large scale: 600 students in one lecture hall for a VT non-major science course. Topics to be covered include syllabus as the "bible" of the course, use of clickers to enhance the educational achievements and course management, facilitating student participation, clamping down on exam cheating, a course management tool kit, using humor in the classroom, and more.
