Strategies for Teaching Large Classes

Large classes create enormous challenges for the faculty who teach them. From reducing anonymity to incorporating active learning activities, there’s a reason why large classes are considered the most difficult to teach … so much of what we know about effective instruction is all that much more difficult with a large class. If teaching large classes is a part of your life, you’ll want to download our new Special Report: Strategies for Teaching Large Classes.


Sometimes you look out from the podium at the sea of faces looking back at you, and you wonder: Is this a class or a rock concert?

Most educators would agree that their ideal teaching environment would be (to carry the musical theme a little further) the equivalent of an intimate, acoustic, coffee-shop performance.

But instead, they often get… Woodstock.
