Description

With growth in student population, current budget constrictions, and increased enrollment, more and more instructors are facing the challenges of engaging students in a large format classroom (Dietz, 2002; UC Berkley, 2004). The traditional and often most-efficient teaching method is the lecture, but this format can be “impersonal, anonymous, and permits passivity,” all contrary to optimal student learning (Gehring, 2006). A number of trends including demographic shifts and the availability of new technology are prompting rethinking of teaching and learning in the high enrollment setting (Dietz, 2002; Gehring, 2006; UC Berkley, 2004).
