Pedagogical Techniques

Carleton on Camera - This project captured teaching in action and coupled it with faculty reflections on what they were trying to accomplish.

Faculty-Coached, In-Class Problem Solving - In this class format, students work collaboratively to solve problems, while professors provide a structured, guided context.

Quantitative Writing - Quantitative writing is the written explanation of a quantitative analysis. A good quantitative writing assignment engages students with an open-ended, ambiguous, data-rich problem requiring the thinker to understand principles and concepts rather than simply applying formulae.

Teaching with Visualizations - This module discusses the use in teaching of sophisticated visualizations, which allow one to visualize multidimensional data.
