Large Classes can be daunting for professors and isolating for students, but they don’t have to be! In this interactive lecture we’ll identify the challenges we face when teaching large lecture classes and pedagogical strategies from the latest scholarly research to address them.  We’ll also discuss some teaching and learning opportunities that are only available in the mass classroom.
