Open Classroom Week: BIOL 435

Open Classroom Week gives instructors the opportunity to observe what others are doing in their classrooms and engage in conversations about teaching with their colleagues. A number of instructors will open their classroom doors to allow their colleagues to watch them teach and observe their approaches to different classroom settings, teaching practices, technology applications and learning experiences.

BIOL 435 - Biology of Fungi
Location: ST 135
Instructor: Heather Addy
Course description: Morphology, life history patterns and systematics of fungi. Fungal ecology including fungi as parasites, symbionts and decomposers. Basic molecular biology, genetics and physiology.

Observers can expect to see teaching strategies including: Team-based learning, Flipped classes, Active learning / interactive lecture

Are observers allowed to engage and participate in class?

  • Yes. On Mon. Oct 16, I can bring additional test forms so that observers can try out a two-stage test. 

How can observers follow up if they have questions or would like more information?

  • Observers can speak with instructor after class(es) they observe 

Are there any observer expectations?

  • The class on Monday Oct. 16 will involve two-stage testing, in which students first take the team as individuals and then as a team and thus the first 10-12 minutes of the class will be just individual quiz time.

Any additional information?
