Title of the presentation:

Teaching interactively in large classrooms

Short abstract of the presentation:

In this workshop hands on experience on teaching in large classrooms and engaging students in power-sharing situations will be discussed. The workshop relies heavily on the participants to filter the collective experience. As the summer school group can be considered a large classroom in its own right, then the way of managing the group discussion can also be used as an interactive example of classroom experience.
