Instructors of large lecture courses—with 100 or more students—face particular challenges in the adoption and use of active learning pedagogies and practices. This FLC will examine the unique teaching experience of large lecture courses across disciplines, with an emphasis on sharing experiences, practices, and challenges in a supportive environment. The FLC welcomes those experienced in large lecture teaching as well as those new to this scale of teaching.
As a group, participants explore these questions:
- How can active learning practices apply to large lecture courses?
- What resources are available for implementing active learning in large lectures?
- How can an interdisciplinary community of practice around active learning in large lecture courses invigorate students and enhance learning?
