    "Engaging Students: An Old Dog Learns New Tricks" - Greg Plumb

    What can an old, experienced teacher learn about better engaging students in classroom discussions and general class participation? Impromptu small group discussions, pick-a-card method of selecting students to question in class, posting questions for each class session in the course syllabus, reaction papers at the end of a class session, and allowing students to select assignments are just a few of the methods used. This presentation was based on an Association of College and University Educators (ACUE) course - Effective Teaching Practices, in which the presenter participated in AY2017-18.
