IAP 2006 Activity

Teaching Beyond the Textbook: The Role of Technology in Curriculum Development and Delivery
Manos Chaniotakis
Wed Jan 18, Thu Jan 19, 10-12:00am, NW14-1112

No enrollment limit, no advance sign up
Participants requested to attend all sessions (non-series)

This course makes the case for interactive teaching. How do you go about introducing a hands-on component to a course while at the same time enhancing the theoretical/conceptual dimension of the class? What is the pedagogical value of hands-on teaching? What is the state of technology in interactive teaching?
The first day, educator and entrepreneur, Dr. Tom Hsu, will share his experiences in interactive and hands-on teaching from middle school to graduate school. On the second day, we will take a tour of the 6.071, 22.071 class/lab room. We will experience hands-on teaching by running and evaluating various 6.071 experiments.
