Derek Bruff Visits CNDLS

Derek Bruff is an assistant director at the Vanderbilt University Center for Teaching and a senior lecturer in Vanderbilt's Department of Mathematics, but these days he may be most well-known as "the clicker guy." He's currently visiting Georgetown to talk with faculty about student engagement and participatory learning. Yesterday, he led a session titled "Class Time Reconsidered: Motivating Student Participation and Engagement," in which he asked faculty to rethink how they structure in-class activities and homework assignments. You can view his presentation and references here. Today, Derek will be giving a talk titled “Connecting with Participatory Culture: Teaching with Clickers for Deep Learning." Join us at 3pm in Copley Formal Lounge for what's sure to be an engaging session.
