Just-In-Time Teaching hints

Last weekend was the annual Future Faculty Fellows Summer Institute (see Pictures of Fourwinds Resort & Marina for shots from last year so there is no rain). The weekend is an intensive workshop with sessions on teaching, and being a faculty member. I walked away with lots of notes some of which I will be sharing here through a set of individual entries.

First is the recommendation of the book, cover art is on the right. Full citation: Novak, Gregor, Gavin, Andrew, Christian, Wolfgang, & Patterson, Evelyn (Mar. 1, 1999). Just-in-Time Teaching. New York: Prentice Hall.

One idea that we were given to us by Jay R. Howard relates to undergrad students interest in reading textbooks (he has an article on the topic but I can't find a citation through database search).  Jay said that he had a problem in his Sociology classes that students would not read the textbooks.  So he started using a tip from Just-in-Time Teaching and now there is a short quiz due 2 hours before class, submitted via electronic resources.  Now more students are reading the text because:  First the quiz itself prods them to read the material, and second he uses the 2 hours to pull detail from the short answer and essay question that is then used in his lecture - what student doesn't like to see their work called out in a positive way.  I like this tip.  Not sure I will use it this year but it will be in my teaching tools kit.
