Conference theme

Empowering students and staff through small teaching

Small teaching examines the modest but powerful changes we can all make that lead to big enhancements for our students’ learning. It is a strategy developed and extended by James Lang and Flower Darby that seeks to “spark positive change in higher education through small but powerful modifications to our course design and teaching practices” (Lang, 2021, p.4). As a strategy, small teaching draws on “research on learning and higher education to create a deliberate, structured and incremental approach” (Lang, 2021, p.5) to changing our practices for the better.

In addition to their books (linked to above), James and Flower discuss the topic and share insights in the following freely available Teaching in Higher Ed podcasts (full transcripts available): Small teaching with James Lang; Small teaching online with Flower Darby. James Lang also discusses the science behind small teaching in this recorded speaker series.
