The Challenge of Interactive Teaching

Professor Lyle Unger, Computer and Information Science

Wednesday, April 16 | 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm

Graduate Student Workshops

Convener: Richard Eisenberg, CTL Graduate Fellow, CIS

Location: Skirkanich 114 (Greenberg Lounge)

Summary: Those of us wishing to have students actively learning in our classes face a constant challenge: how do we balance interactivity with content coverage? Having students work in groups in class, or even just fielding clicker questions, reduces the amount that we can lecture. What’s the optimal mix for students? Come join Prof. Lyle Ungar for a conversation about this tension and some possible ways forward.

Indian food lunch (for real this time!) will be served.

This event is open to the wider university community, though the topic will be of more interest to folks in SEAS. Students and faculty are both encouraged to attend.

(but walk-ins always welcome!)
All graduate students are welcome. This event grows out of concerns in the School of Engineering and Applied Science and so may be most useful to students in related fields.
