Cooking for the Buffet - individualizing course content to improve learning


Tuesday, January 8th, 20082:00 pm – 2:30 pm

Presented by: Dennis K. Pearl, The Ohio State University


Abstract

This presentation will describe the "Buffet" method for teaching multi-section courses. In this method, students are offered a choice of content delivery strategies designed to match different individual learning styles. The choice is exercised through an on-line "contract" entered into by students at the beginning of the term. The webinar will describe our experiences with the buffet strategy at Ohio State and discuss how key elements of the strategy can also be adapted to smaller classes to improve student learning.
