CTE activity

(I delivered a mini-lecture on the importance of "essential questions" in every lecture for the hiring committee at the Centre for Teaching Excellence. I concluded with an interactive learning activity asking "what essential information can we take from one of the three lectures below to apply to today"? These are their results!)
