Classroom Assessment Techniques (PDF)
Classroom assessment techniques are activities that can be used for both faculty and students to gather information on the learning process. They are generally simple activities that can provide useful formative information and feedback.
Integrating Learning Pauses into Your Lectures (PDF)
The term learning pause refers to pausing the lecture (or, more specifically, the instructor’s time directly expositing content) to incorporate active learning activities that focus on students processing the information from the lecture.

Lecturing can be one of the most effective ways to deliver large amounts of content to a variety of class sizes. To contribute to higher levels of student success, incorporating strategies to make lectures more interactive is a way to engage students in the learning process.
