Instructional Methods

  • Lecturing Effectively

    Lecturing Effectively

    Effective lecturing does more than just communicate information.
  • Discussions


    Class discussions can motivate students while also helping them retain knowledge and develop effective problem-solving abilities.
  • Service Learning

    Service Learning

    At DePaul, we conceptualize service learning as a pedagogical model that intentionally integrates relevant and meaningful service with the community, academic learning, and civic engagement.
  • Internships


    Internships integrate accredited academic coursework with periods of supervised, relevant experiences in the workplace. They not only provide students with an opportunity to practice and apply knowledge in a field of study but also provide a learning scaffold for real-world workplace issues.
  • Field Work
