Solving Teaching Problems in a series of brainstorming workshops for PSU faculty members in which a teaching problem is discussed among participants and recommendations to solve the problem are proposed and implemented. The objective is to bring together faculty members at PSU to exchange their experiences about teaching problems they faced and how they solved them, and discuss among participants the different alternative on solving such problems. At the end of each session, participants should agree on a set of recommendations to solve a discussed problem. These recommended actions should be implemented by faculty members and report about their effectiveness.

The teaching problem discussed and recommended actions will be posted in this page to share among all faculty members at PSU.

  • their prior experience with such a problem,
  • what are the possible reasons for the problem
  • identify possible strategies to address the problem

After the brainstorming discussion, the workshop coordinator should coordinate with participants to write a report about the teaching problem, with the possible reasons and the recommended strategies to solve the problem.
