Improving Students' Learning by Having Them Teach

February 8, 2018, 2:00pm to 3:00pm
Part of series: 

Open to: All instructors, graduate students, and teaching staff


Faculty often tell us, “I didn’t really learn it until I taught it.” In this session, we will talk about positioning students as instructors within the context of an existing course—placing them in charge of their own and others’ learning. We’ll explore the impetus for changing the dynamic, discuss challenges and opportunities, and surface models that can adopted or adapted for your own course.

Please join your Berkeley colleagues for this open and informal discussion. Light refreshments will be provided. Please RSVP so we know how many people to expect.


  • Line Mikkelsen (Linguistics)
  • Zvezdelina Entcheva Stankova (Mathematics)

Moderated by Ryan Sloan (Berkeley College Writing Programs / Haas School of Business)


Registration is unavailable. Registration closed on February 7, 2018 - 5:00pm.
