It’s daunting enough to be in front of a classroom on some days, and even worse to be in one where you aren’t sure your voice will carry to the back row. The CITES Academic Technology Services and the Center for Teaching Excellence are partnering to create a class for just this problem – “Technology Can Help You Teach Large Classes.”
In this session, Alan Bilansky of CITES will present to teachers on strategies for classes with large enrollments, and how technology is being used to overcome the challenge of size. Teachers will discuss technologies like the graders in Illinois Compass and Illinois Compass 2g, Wikis for group work, and perhaps most importantly, how to check student understanding – when there are so many students to assess.
This event is scheduled to be held from 2-3 p.m. on July 19 at 23 Illini Hall. Registration is required, so sign up here.
