From Lecture to Applied Instruction (or Twenty Six Years of Teaching – if I Knew Then What I Know Now)
Friday, October 24, 2014
Bend, SCI 190, 12 - 1 pm

Would you like a classroom with more engaged students? Where students come more prepared each day for class? Recently retired Business instructor Jim Kress stops back by campus to show you how he moved from a lecture based teaching format to an applied learning process for his students. This not only enhanced their learning it also reinvigorated him professionally.  He will share both the “why” and the “how” this happened. In addition, he will share some great tips on how to save time while teaching.
