Simple Technologies for Enhancing Interactivity and Effectiveness in Large First-Year Classes Dr. Adam Sarty Department of Astronomy & Physics Saint Mary’s University Halifax, NS Canada The Challenge of being an Effective Teacher in a large first-year university course… • A long-standing issue – now being seen in a “new light” because of: Continuing increase of university enrollment Reduction in faculty complement at many Canadian universities Increased pressure from public & legislators to keep universities as places of quality Teaching (not just Research) • New sources of help for faculty in the form of “Teaching & Learning Centres” or “Instructional Development Offices” at many Canadian Universities. AAU Teaching Showcase 2002 A.J. Sarty, Dept. of Astronomy & Physics, SMU 1 AAU Teaching Showcase 2002 A.J. Sarty, Dept. of Astronomy & Physics, SMU 2 In this talk, I will … • Illustrate a few “simple technologies” that can assist with this Challenge. • Discuss my method of bringing these technology tools together in a (somewhat!) cohesive manner using my own experience with an introductory physics course (“Physics for the Life Sciences” at SMU). • Attempt to Link each Technology with a particular “Interactivity Issue” faced by teachers of large classes The “Simple Technology” Tools: For use during Lectures: • Personal Response System (PRS) Active Learning through polling the audience ( “Who Wants to be a … Physicist?!!” ) • Wireless cams: Making the tabletop big For use outside of Lectures: • Individualized, web-based homework assignments (“CAPA”) • An OnLine Resource Tool for Physics-Concept Demonstrations AAU Teaching Showcase 2002 A.J.
