14C _ Faculty Can Make Big Classes Fun Sewage Hearing* lo Begin ^r f ...... /\vttr*UlttC£t MOKGANTOWN-Wbea fid Caldweil teaches 20 to 30 students in an advanced psychology class at West Virginia I'niversity. it's fan. That's because he knows the students and he's confident they're learning. But when he lectures to an introductory class, he faces 80 to 100 fidgety students, he may know only four or five of them, and he's sure (tests prove i t » that they aren't learning enough. That's what prompted Dr. Caldweil, associate professor of psychology, and 34 other WVU faculty to enroll voluntarily in a two-week innova- tive teaching course offered recenlty at WVL' by the Georgetown University Center for Personalized instruction. Dr. Caldweil and James Shafer. professor of psychology, arranged for the course to be taught at WVU. By taking he course, faculty in the WVU College of Arts and Sciences hope to improve their teaching and thus make their classes more interesting. "It's a cat-and-mouse game when you lecture 109 students,'" Dr. Caldweil observed. "When you have a class that size, the interaction between students and instruc- tors is almost zer«. Worse, tests show they are»'t leaning what they should be--tkat maybe tfcey are absorbing W per ee*t of the material presented to tkem when they should be mastering 90 per cent of it." Under the method studied by WVU faculty, courses are broken down into smaller, more manageable units. Student tutors assist the instructor, and lectures largely are avoided in favor of informal discussion groups. Another important feature of the method is that study guides are prepared for each unit of the course. Instead of just walking iato a classroom and lecturing, a professor defines the work to be covered, tells the students what is expected of them and offers suggestions on how to approach the material. During the two-week course for WVU faculty. Dr. Caldweil and the other participating professors used the new method to learn how it works. In essence, they were in program similar to what their students will encounter in their classes this fall. * * * EACH of the instructors produced his own material, took part in informal discus- sions and seminars, and was tested on what he had learned. For his part, Dr Caldweil developed a 16-unit plan for his fall psychology 1 course. With minor variations, the class will be patterned along the lines of what he studied recently. For instance, he will spell out at the opening class session what students must do to pass the course. Dr. Caldweil will use five student tutors in the calss in "an attempt to individualize instruction." John Stasny. associate professor of English who also took the two-week course, said he has drawn up a modi- fied version of it for use in some of his classes. But he thinks the lecture is still valuable. "It's probably better sailed for precise coiteat cwurses-- suck as ngueerug or efcem- istry wfcere it's bet* nsw* «*·* eessfully," he added. Stasny said he will apply nis version of the method in the first half of his poetry and drama class this summer. He will use a traditional lecture and discussion approach in the drama portion of the class, then make a comparison of the two methods at the end of the term.
