Small Class Size and Technology-Enabled Learning at MIT

Nice NY Times article on class size and technology-enabled learning at MIT, where they are getting rid of the large lecture hall, opting instead for “pioneering teaching methods drawn from research showing that most students learn fundamental concepts more successfully, and are better able to apply them, through interactive, collaborative, student-centered learning.”

The article talks about using clickers in the classroom as well, a subject near and dear to my heart. See my website and my free research-to-practice report on how to use questions with audience-response technology.
