Lecture & Presentation Strategies --Todd Gibson (CSCI), with Joni Dunlap (U of Colorado, Denver)—Tuesday, March 4, 4-5:30 pm in MLIB STUDIO A Register now.
Is “lecture” a bad word these days? Not necessarily! In many disciplines and for many instructors, lecture is a good fit for at least part of class time (or in other cases, for inclusion online). However, research and experience tell us that several easy-to-incorporate strategies can improve the effectiveness of lecture and presentations—join this panel for an interactive discussion of what works and what doesn’t.
2014 CELT Learning Enhancement Grant proposals due February 28.
