Additional Resources on Teaching Large Classes

 1.  DVD: "Student Opinion and Evaluation of Large Classes"

This DVD contains 30 minutes of a group interview with UCSB undergraduates from a large lower division general education course. The interview was conducted by UCSB Professor William Prothero in 1995. The students express their views on what makes large classes effective and not so effective. Numerous insightful comments are made about their positive and negative experiences in large lecture courses including the TA discussion and laboratory sections.

This DVD can be pruchased for $19.95 + shipping. Although made in 1995, what the students say offers useful stimulus for instructor workshops, brown bags, and other conversations about teaching and learning.
