We asked Psychology Lecturer Mark Laumakis a few questions about why, what, and how he does what he does for his students on a daily basis. Here's a taste of what he had to say.
What is the most fulfilling aspect of teaching for you?
"I really enjoy helping students learn concepts that are important and relevant to their everyday lives."
What drew you to seek a student engagement solution in your course?
"I was seeking to combat the student passivity that can characterize student behavior in large lecture courses."
