Engaging Large Classes: Are you teaching a class with more than 40 students? Queens College is offering an increasing number of large classes with some classes exceeding 200 students. Engaging students in large classes can be a particular challenge.
We are offering a set of three workshops that will help you design your class to more effectively engage your students. While you can attend any single workshop, we would encourage you to register for all three. The workshops will be run by Dr. Holtzman from the Department of Biology. She regularly teaches classes of over 150 students.
Please register for each event independently. Each event will be held during MONDAY FREE HOUR in Faculty Development Lab Razran 360.
