Teaching observation-Dr. Pederson and Dr. Kelsch visits class

Today, three classmates and I ventured to scenic Mayville, ND to observe Dr. John Pederson’s History 103 class at Mayville State University. It was an interesting class complete with a unique learning exercise involving the letters between John and Abigail Adams, where students were asked to either applaud or hiss at certain points. Dr. Pederson then engaged students with various questions, which students answered. Overall, the class was good, despite being held in a choir room. We discussed teaching philosophy with Dr. Pederson.

After a quick lunch, we returned to Grand Forks and attended class, which included a visit by Dr. Anne Kelsch of the Office of Instructional Development, and formerly of the History Department. We had a good talk and learned about exercises she did in class and what her office offered for instructors on campus. Despite the long day, we learned much about teaching techniques and services.
