Are you interested in developing an active learning classroom that uses both competition and cooperation? Come learn about “The Quest for Kudos Challenge”! Quest for Kudos is a long-term, multitask, large group competition where students compete for a reward in the context of a cooperative learning experience. Facilitated by Sarah Rosol (Mgmt.), this session will describe the challenge and review the logistics of doing a cooperative and competitive class project. Research findings suggest, among other things, that students who participated in the Quest for Kudos Challenge received higher exam scores and participated more often in class. Instructor outcomes included positive feedback from students. No registration required. (Rescheduled from October 2014)

Wednesday, February 4, 2015 - 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm

Teaching graduate and undergraduate students in the same class can be challenging. This session focuses on strategies for making sure that you meet the needs of all students in these courses. The Graduate College is in the process of making a guide for faculty teaching these courses: panelists will be presenting their strategies. Please come and share your experiences and strategies for teaching those courses, too!

Note: This event will also be offered on Tuesday, February 10th from 12:30-1:30 pm in LIB 378.
