A University of Iowa Office of Teaching, Learning and Technology video features Mark Andersland, associate professor of electrical and computer engineering, on "The Extraordinary Teaching Project: Individualized Learning in a Large Class."

Andersland's approach uses immediate feedback and individualized instruction to improve student learning and motivation. He designed his large lecture engineering course to include active learning, student-centered instruction, frequent formative assessments, and immediate feedback, which yields increased student engagement and learning.
