Anyone with a successful experience on the market have thoughts about how to put together a good teaching demo? I gave a disastrous one this summer, and would be very appreciative for any suggestions. The biggest problem I'm having is translating my teaching style into such a contrived situation. Because I have small classes that meet for two hours twice weekly, I break up every class period into three parts: (1) group work for students based on questions I give them for their readings, which we then discuss as a class, (2) discussion of individual students' reading questions, and finally (3) a traditional lecture, with some give-and-take with the students thrown in for good measure. I've found that this format works like a charm (and my students seem to love it), but I don't know how to really translate it into a teaching demo. Any ideas? What worked for you?
