In this section, we introduce you to Eric Frost's geology course. Discussed are what happens on a typical day in the classroom, what is Eric's approach, and is it working?
In this section, we introduce you to Eric Frost's colleagues at San Diego State University (SDSU) and present the information necessary to understand the context within which they strive to achieve their goals for student learning.
Learning Problems and Goals
Here we examine, first, the learning problems that Eric faced, problems that ultimately motivated him to change his curriculum; then, we take a look at the goals the he has set for student learning
Creating the Learning Environment
In this section, we look closely at how Eric created a new learning environment-the tools he uses, and the activities he assigns. This section is deeply informative and includes links to both faculty and student discussions of learning activities.
Wondering about the logistics? The SDSU faculty share how they did it: from acquiring the necessary resources (time, space, money, etc.), to networking, to responding to resistance to teaching approaches that require students to take more responsibility for their own learning.
