Class time is a precious commodity, but how often do we stop to think about how it's being used? Should class activities merely transmit information that is already printed in the students' textbook? Do our students actually learn during class, or do they simply feverishly scribble down everything we say, hoping somehow to understand the material later? We are investigating ways that instructors can enhance student understanding, by promoting active learning in the classroom and pursuing strategies that meet the needs of diverse students.
