Workshop: Teaching Tools to Improve Student Learning and Teacher Evaluations

By Todd Easton

Todd Easton, K-State's Coffman chair for distinguished teaching scholars, invites all faculty and graduate teaching assistants to attend a workshop on effective teaching tools, from 11-12:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 7, in 2064 Durland/Rathbone Hall.

Space is limited. Email teaston@k-state.edu to register in advance. Lunch will be provided for all preregistered participants. 

This 90-minute hands-on workshop presents techniques to help faculty engage students during lecture. Research has shown that engaging students improves learning and teacher evaluations. Attendees will learn passive methods to interact with students, common active learning methods, and a new active learning method called lecture based tutoring. The focus of the workshop is for participants to leave with new methods, techniques, and tools to use in their classrooms.
