Round Table Discussion

Lecture Tutorials are a method to increase student engagement in introductory geoscience courses. They are easy-to-implement worksheets focusing on misconceptions and difficult topics that students complete in groups during breaks in the lecture. In this roundtable, we will discuss best practices when using Lecture Tutorials, and participants will leave with concrete strategies to implement them in their courses. To provide a rich discussion, we welcome participants who are new to Lecture Tutorials and those who have previously used them.
