Big classes, name tents, and anxiety in the classroom | Center for Teaching

Big classes, name tents, and anxiety in the classroom | Center for Teaching | Center for Teaching Excellence Resource Center | Scoop.it
Classes at my institution started last week, which means that my co-teacher and I greeted just over 150 students in our biochemistry class. When I start the semester, I’m always struck by how many students there are, and how a big class like this would not have brought out the best in me. I thrived in the small classes I experienced in college, where I got to know my professors and my colleagues pretty well, and I think that I would have found a class of 150 intimidating and perhaps isolating.

Searchlights and Sunglasses

Searchlights and Sunglasses | Center for Teaching Excellence Resource Center | Scoop.it

Searchlights and Sunglasses is about journalism and change. You do not need be a bleeding-edge technologist to understand this book; it’s for the middle of the bell curve, especially for the journalism educators who by now should be changing but can’t seem to get started. In a way, the book is like a giant pair of sunglasses, filtering the endless beams of “new information” about the future of news. Thanks to a team organized by the nation’s oldest journalism school, the University of Missouri, with the touch of a button the book becomes a classroom edition. In this “learning layer,” you will find lessons, discussions, activities, videos, links and research assignments designed to help teachers and students get the most out of a digital book experience.

Tips for Learning Student Names

Tips for Learning Student Names | Center for Teaching Excellence Resource Center | Scoop.it

Learning students’ names—and helping them learn each other’s names—is an important step toward creating a welcoming course climate. Research shows that students appreciate when an instructor makes an effort to learn names, while a lack of effort can make the instructor seem remote and unapproachable (Rubrecht, 2006). In particularly large classes, it may seem impossible to learn every student’s name, but even learning some names will foster a more caring and inclusive atmosphere.

Pedagogy in Action

Pedagogy in Action | Center for Teaching Excellence Resource Center | Scoop.it
The goal of the Pedagogic Service is encourage educators to reflect critically on their own teaching practices and to support them in exploring new pedagogies. Building on a successful model in the geosciences, we have created a library of pedagogic methods and a collection of activities which exemplify each method. The complete library is available through the Pedagogy in Action portal. Additionally, the library is used by our partners to create customized pedagogic portals for their own websites. Each portal links together information about pedagogic methods with examples of their use.
