Titles and Annotations of Documents by Dr. James Bell
from Howard Community College
(Updated January 1998)
I like doing workshops for college faculty. I use active learning when
possible and provide all participants with a comprehensive handout so that
note taking is not necessary and there is more time for thinking. The workshop
handouts are revisions of materials I have used at workshops I give on
teaching and on critical thinking.
Three of the handouts are ones I developed to use with students.
