CDF: Teaching with Your Mouth Shut: Incorporating Activities into (Smaller) Lecture Classes

February 28, 2024 at 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM

Location:481 MacOdrum Library

If you teach smaller classes (under ~60 students) and are looking for ways to engage your students in the learning process that go beyond the standard lecture, then this is the workshop for you! This session will introduce you to a range of tried-and-true activity ideas and effective practices for running them, while creating opportunities for you to reflect on their applicability for your own teaching. You’ll leave this session with some new “tools” to add to your existing teaching toolkits. 

At the end of this session, you will be able to: 

  • Describe a series of learning activities 
  • Explain some effective practices for facilitating activities 
  • Reflect on which activities and facilitation techniques you might want to refine or add to your teaching tool kit 

This is part of Course Design Fundamentals, offered by TLS. Participants who complete five workshops and a guided reflection of the experience will receive a letter of completion to include in their teaching dossier. To enrol in the CDF program, please complete this form and register for the workshops here.

“The journey through these (CDF) workshops has been transformative, reshaping my educational approach in profound ways. The insights I’ve gained have not only helped me become a better educator but have also changed how I think about teaching effectively. As I step into each classroom, I am prepared with strategies that empower students to become active participants in their learning journey.” (CDF program participant)
