The Large Lecture consortium is an interdisciplinary faculty learning community composed of faculty who teach classes of ~70 students or more. Members of the consortium share experiences and strategies for enhancing learning for students in their large classes. Some sessions feature host speakers who facilitate discussions on topics of interest to the group. The learning community also collects a repository of resources for teaching large classes. If you are interested in joining this learning community email email@example.com.
Upcoming Meetings & Events (open to all Tufts faculty)
Creating opportunities to help students with different preparations succeed in large classes
Thursday October 3rd, 2019, 12-1:30pm
Large classes enroll a diverse student population, bringing with them different sets of experiences and background knowledge and skills. Because of the class size, providing individual feedback and grading student work can become very challenging for Faculty & TAs. Join this discussion addressing practical ways to provide students with the feedback & assessment they need to succeed.
Maximizing meaningful feedback to students while minimizing faculty’s grading workload
Friday, November 1st 2019, 12-1:30pm
Grading and providing feedback is a necessary component to teaching, but can be particularly burdensome in large classes. How do you efficiently manage the workload, while providing students with the timely feedback they need to guide their steps forward in the learning process? In this session, we will identify challenges and strategize techniques for improving your grading experience.
