Resources for Teaching

Each class session, directly aligned to one or more course outcomes, begins with engaging attention getting openings that capture students’ interest. The instructor uses a variety of instructional strategies to enhance both individual and collaborative student engagement: engaging lectures are abbreviated; class sessions include small and/or whole group discussion; writing; cooperative learning: problem solving, think-pair-share; jigsaw, etc. Metaphors, analogies, stories, cooperative activities, technology and demonstrations are regularly incorporated into teaching to illustrate ideas and concepts. Lessons close with a revisiting of the day’s lesson objective.
