Using Lesson Design as a Vehicle for Faculty Professional Development
Jones, Matthew G.; Johnston, Susan
PRIMUS, v20 n7 p575-590 2010
In this article, we describe the development of a lesson plan template and its basis in research. In particular, we summarize research supporting the need for mathematics instructors to build students' conceptual understanding and to engage students throughout instruction. We explain how these elements were incorporated into the lesson plan and include excerpts from sample plans. Then, we describe how this lesson plan template was used as the basis for professional development for local adjunct mathematics instructors, and the participants' evaluation of the experience. Finally, we describe what the authors learned from the evaluation and the participants' lessons.
