3 ASCE ExCEEd Teaching Workshop A Structured Methodology for Organizing a Class 1. Formulate learning objectives. 2. Develop in-class learning activities.  Prepare a lesson outline.  Prepare “board notes.” 3. Develop out-of-class learning activities.  Select reading assignments.  Develop homework assignments and projects.

Develop in-class learning activities:  Prepare a lesson outline.  Prepare “board notes.” 3. Develop out-of-class learning activities.  Select reading assignments.  Develop homework assignments and projects.

5 ASCE ExCEEd Teaching Workshop u Identify major topics to be covered or learning activities to be performed.  Typically per class.  Should address the lesson objectives. u Determine the hierarchy of concepts. u Determine a logical sequence. u Plan visual aids and demonstrations. 2. Prepare a Lesson Outline

6 ASCE ExCEEd Teaching Workshop 2010 Example Outline: Trusses 1 u Review (“just in time”)  2 Force Members  Concurrent/Non-Concurrent Force Systems u Trusses  Definition  Examples  Real world examples  PowerPoint presentation  Model Demo  Strength:Weight  Assumptions/Implications u Example Problem  Reactions  Method of Joints  Method of Sections u Helpful Hints for Problem-Solving (If time permits)

8 ASCE ExCEEd Teaching Workshop 2010 Background on Board Notes u Evolved from USMA’s segmented blackboards. u Can be used for any classroom presentation media:  Other types of chalkboard  Whiteboards  Transparencies  PowerPoint u Cited as “most effective” by previous ETW participants.

9 ASCE ExCEEd Teaching Workshop u The entire classroom presentation recorded accurately on paper u Generally one board per topic u Plan use of colored chalk:  Illustrates hierarchy of ideas  Enhances clarity, especially for graphics  Adds distinctive character to the class 2. Prepare “Board Notes”

22 ASCE ExCEEd Teaching Workshop 2010 How Can We Apply Learning Styles Theory as the Basis for Organizing a Class? u Perception u Input u Organization u Processing u Understanding sensory - intuitivevisual - verbal inductive - deductive active - reflectivesequential - global

23 ASCE ExCEEd Teaching Workshop Some Ideas u For sensory learners, include practical example problems (with real numbers). u For visual learners, use sketches, graphs, pictures, demonstrations, and video clips. u For inductive learners, present an open-ended application first, then develop the tools to solve it. u For active learners, use small group exercises in class, and allow students to collaborate on homework. u For global learners, discuss the relevance of the subject and relate it to concepts from other lessons and courses.

Develop out-of-class learning activities.  Select reading assignments.  Develop homework assignments and projects.

25 ASCE ExCEEd Teaching Workshop u Time on task is critical to learning. u Integrate in-class and out-of-class learning activities. Prepare Out-of-Class Activities Some Thoughts: Lowman Chapter 8

26 ASCE ExCEEd Teaching Workshop 2010 u Provide an orientation: á Why is this important? á How does it relate to prior knowledge? u Provide learning objectives. u Provide information. u Stimulate critical thinking about the subject. u Provide models. u Provide opportunities to apply the knowledge: á In a familiar context. á In new and unfamiliar contexts. u Assess the learners’ performance and provide feedback. u Provide opportunities for self-assessment. In class or out of class? In class or out of class? A Model Instructional Strategy

27 ASCE ExCEEd Teaching Workshop Prepare Out-of-Class Activities Some Thoughts: Lowman Chapter 8 u Time on task is critical to learning. u Integrate in-class and out-of-class learning activities. u Reading assignments: á Ensure that they are relevant. á Hold students responsible for doing them. u Homework and projects: á Include opportunities to apply knowledge in new contexts. á Full benefit is only attained with constructive assessment and feedback.
