Teaching strategies can be large scale—techniques that shape the entire course experience for your students, such as scheduling regular peer critiquing over the semester, conducting multi-session role plays, and basing your teaching on active-learning principles. They can also be mini-strategies that take just 15 minutes in a class session to double check comprehension or provide opportunity for application, like think-pair-share and write-pair-share techniques.

Teaching strategies, from our perspective, also incorporate tools you use to be sure your course is inclusive, decisions you make about using technology, and tricky questions about how to handle student dissent or other classroom management issues.
