Open Classroom Project Instructors

The instructors involved in the Open Classroom Project have various strategies that they can share when you visit their class, including discussion, lecture, small group work, and clickers.  For any profile, you can open the "More Information" link to see the class schedule for this semester as well as a link to contact the instructor and set up your visit. When scheduling your classroom visit, be sure to confirm the class meeting time and location, as sometimes there could be a room change for a specific date.
