Dang! He’s having us *do* active learning during his keynote lecture!
These by themselves don’t result in learning. Missing component?
*clarify lecture notes (stop talking at them)
*one minute paper (muddiest point)
*brainstorm answers to open-ended problem
*summarize big ideas from last X minutes
*generate test question from lecture material
*non-rhetorical questions (work on this problem)
*Always* calling on volunteers.
*Waiting for everyone to finish. Wasted time for many students. Point is thinking about question ... not the answer!
Prep time? Doesn’t have to be a lot. Some things do, lots of things can do with little or no extra prep time. Ex: minute paper.
Can I still cover the syllabus? Effectiveness of teaching is not what we cover, it’s what they learn. 2 activities, not 20!
Emotion vs. Logic
We think, especially in #STEM, that we are data-driven. We are not! Change is more emotional than we would like to admit.
