Peer instruction vs. traditional lecture: What's the impact on student learning? (with Jennifer Zapf)


The goal of the project was to compare the effects of two teaching approaches; reciprocal teaching, where students in small pods teach and learn from each other, and traditional lecture. We were interested in the impact each method had on students' perception of the instructional method and evaluate the influence of the method on students' grades.

Effectiveness of Collaborative Learning Techniques and Mechanisms to Enhance Students ' Preparedness


Collaborative learning techniques (CoLTS) effectively enhance students' learning and empower critical thinking. The challenge to promote effective group discussions during classes is constrained by how much students are prepared before group activities. On-line quizzes and informal writing assignments (short essays) might be implemented in order to enhance students' preparedness before classes.

Understanding Historical Thinking


I have designed my version of "U.S. History from 1600 to 1865" specifically to develop students' historical thinking skills rather than simply to "cover" the given period of time. My Teaching Scholar's project helps me assess the effectiveness of my course design in meeting this goal. I asked students to explain, in their own words, "what historians do" and to give specific examples if possible. (For comparative purposes, I also questioned students in a similar course taught by a colleague.)
