This week’s teaching strategy:
Build From Restricted Components – Provide limited resources (or adiscrete list of ideas that must be used) and either literally or figurativelydump them on the table, asking students in groups to construct a solutionusing only these things (note: may be familiar from the Apollo 13 movie).If possible, provide red herrings, and ask students to construct a solutionusing the minimum amount of items possible.
(from Kevin Yee, Interactive Techniques, 2007)
