When it comes to choosing instructional strategies for your course, there are a number of variables to consider including class size, learning outcomes, and time. The good news is, you don’t have to choose just one. By mixing various types of instructional strategies, students stay engaged and you can alter your style to fit the situation. Consider lecturing one day and having a cooperative learning exercise the next. Generate discussion with a demonstration and then challenge students to work in teams to solve problems. Here are some resources to help you find the right mix for your class.
