This workshop explores the components of a good lecture in a large class setting alongside the challenges faced by an instructor called on to meet a particular lesson’s goals while sometimes unfamiliar with the syllabus and students. In such a situation, lecturers have to be concerned with both what makes a good lecture and where their lecture fits into the class. How can a lecturer make sure that the lecture will be clear and useful for the students? What other learning goals beyond content might guest lecturers help students achieve? How can a lecturer make sure that the class is in sync with the rest of the semester? How can a guest lecturer take advantage of their individual perspectives in ways that support the goals of the main instructor? These questions will guide participants discussion.
Counts toward the CTL Teaching Certificate. Also counts as a follow-up workshop for SAS participants in TA Training.
