Description: How can you make lecturing an effective and responsive way to teach? This session focuses on an approach for active lecturing that combines strategies for planning the lecture as well as periodic activities to help students maintain attention. It will provide ideas for improving student learning in lecture, such as checking students' understanding through questions, employing response systems, using study guides, and more. We will also consider ideas for leveraging your experience teaching in Zoom to enhance your face-to-face lectures.
