All Yale students are required to take Quantitative Reasoning (QR) courses, and teaching a QR course often requires one to teach logic and analytical skills to students at varying levels of past experience with the material. In this ATW, we will discuss how to use the Socratic method, instructional scaffolding and Bloom’s taxonomy to effectively guide students through challenging content. We will also provide tools to think about feedback and assessment in the context of QR courses. To this end, we plan to engage with the evidence-based literature on the scholarship of teaching and learning. We welcome teaching fellows and instructors of all levels. Feel free to reach out to Nick (jeffrey.fisk@yale.edu) or Nata (nata.dudkina@yale.edu) with any questions!
