Established in 2001 at the University of British Columbia, the Science Centre for Learning and Teaching was created in order to create "an environment that supports reflective science teaching and learning practices." While Skylight's work is primarily focused on working on improving these efforts at the University of British Columbia, they have also created a number of online resources designed for science teachers everywhere. Perhaps one of the best resources on the entire site is the "Teaching Large Classes" area. Within this section, visitors can find highlights from the research literature on teaching, descriptions of practical strategies to enhance learning outcomes, video clip demonstrations, and a selection of links to other relevant resources. There are even other features worth perusing, such as the document "Why Calculus Workshops Really Work" and an interactive presentation on how to create a highly interactive classroom. [KMG]
