A new asynchronous short course initiative from the Drake Institute will draw upon the expertise of local, national and international experts to share resources for implementing evidence-based teaching practices.

Starting on July 6 , Dr. Benjamin Wiggins from the University of Washington will share insights about the use of active learning in large lecture settings. Dr. Wiggins has extensive experience in both practicing and researching active learning in large lectures. In this short course, he will provide guidance for planning and implementing multiple research-based active learning strategies.

Ohio State instructors can complete this short course asynchronously in Carmen at their own pace, with options for weekly online conversation and discussion. There is no set deadline for completion. Participants should expect approximately 4 to 6 hours of work involved in each of the four steps of the course, for a total of approximately 16 to 24 hours of professional learning.

Last autumn, Associate Professor Subbu Kumarappan, PhD, initially planned to take attendance using the polling feature in Zoom. This proved difficult however, especially for students who logged in late, had poor internet connections, or couldn't attend synchronous sessions due to illness.

Kumarappan needed a more meaningful way to engage student participation. In experimenting with TopHat and asking students to reflect briefly on key lessons at the end of each class, he saw knowledge retention and engagement increase throughout the semester, so much so that he plans to use these techniques for the rest of his teaching practice.
