Teaching Strategies
This section includes general teaching strategies that can be used across science areas. These include icebreakers, classroom activity formats, stories for introducing particular concepts, methods for student engagement, methods for improving students’ quality of scientific writing, assignments that elicit cognitive thinking while maintaining low marking load on the instructor, lab ideas, information on clickers, etc.
