Improving College Teaching by Encouraging Wider Student Participation.
Hunter, Elizabeth
Suggestions for teaching without lecturing, and with wide student participation are presented. Having students work in varying groups is proposed to help students feel comfortable about participating. A weekly oral evaluation by the students of the instruction and course content is viewed as a valuable tool both for the instructor and for enabling students to assert themselves. Other recommendations include: giving quizzes in pairs and trios; having students prepare questions for discussion based on assigned reading; allowing enough time for students to respond to discussion questions; and using games, simulations, and activities that call for the participation of everyone in a variety of ways.
