Improving Teaching and Learning in Large Classes: A Practical Manual. Revised 1989.
Herr, Kay U.
This practical reference guide for college faculty who teach large classes is presented, based on a workshop on improving teaching and learning in large classes. The workshop involved weekly meetings for the academic year, 1981-82, at Colorado State University. The following problems of teaching and learning in large classes were identified: (1) social and physical control of the classroom; (2) class discussion and questions; (3) the personalization of instruction including use of the small group technique; (4) building and maintaining rapport with students and other affective factors; (6) the lecture: content, delivery, and notetaking; and (7) use of media. Suggestions are made for promoting student comments and discussion. (JD)
