Even with a whopping 58 students in the class, the spring semester has flown by. Since we like to elicit a lot of participation from the student, facilitate a lot of group activities, get the students moving around, and playing around with different learn space set ups, an increased class size, in a room with auditorium style fixed seating, made for some teaching and facilitation challenges. But my dad and I made the necessary adjustments and, as far as I can say, had a good time working, yet again, with another group of AU students.
As we’ve done in the past, we ended the semester with students working in teams to design a education/training program that seeks to address one of many development challenges facing the finctional country of Afrinia. The teams then present their program to the rest of the class, specifically addressing questions related to the major themes and concepts covered during the semester. We did a little something different this year, however, with the presentations – we asked each team to put together a pecha-kucha presentation.
