Why College Students Do Better When The Teacher Stops Lecturing
from Deseret News
When 700 biology students sit down in Scott Freeman's stadium-style lecture hall at the University of Washington, they don't lean back. They stay on their toes. They often work in small groups doing worksheets as teaching assistants move through the aisles answering questions. If Freeman does lecture, he punctuates it with electronic clicker quizzes and small group discussions followed by questions posed to randomly chosen students. Freeman takes teaching seriously because that is what he does. If that sounds obvious, it's not.
