Teaching Techniques

As you may have noticed, I tried a number of teaching techniques this semester, including hands-on laboratories, lecture, discussion, and student-led discussion/exploration. I'd like to learn more about your opinions on the mix, and which parts we need to do more or less of.

Labs

[ ] Add many more
[ ] Add a few more
[ ] About right
[ ] Remove a few
[ ] Remove a lot
[ ] No opinion

Lecture

[ ] Add a lot more lecture
[ ] Add a little more lecture
[ ] About right
[ ] Use less lecture
[ ] Use a lot less lecture
[ ] No opinion

Discussion and recitation

[ ] Add a lot more discussion and recitation
[ ] Add a little more discussion and recitation
[ ] About right
[ ] Use less discussion and recitation
[ ] Use a lot less discussion and recitation
[ ] No opinion

Students-at-Whiteboard (used in graph algorithms)

[ ] Add a lot more of this technique
[ ] Add a little more of this technique
[ ] About right
[ ] Use less of this technique
[ ] Use a lot less of this technique
[ ] No opinion


During discussion and recitation, I tended to both ask for volunteers and call on students by name. I'd like to know how this felt to you.

I felt comfortable answering questions when Sam asked the class as a whole.

Project

This was the first time we've tried a very large project in CSC152. I realize it was somewhat overwhelming to many of you, and I'd like to consider whether it is something we should continue to do. In the future, I'll probably start it earlier in the semester.

I found the project a valuable learning experience.
