Think Small, Teach Big...
TEP's Winter and Spring Event Series will consider strategies for bringing the interactivity, personal attention, and sense of community that, ideally, characterize small-class teaching to larger class settings. Experimenting with everything from technology to acting techniques and creative assignment design, we'll ask, “Can we make the big class feel even more connected, exciting, and meaningful?”
