The slides of the presentation on the Control Theory lectures like they were used in my talk at the annual event of LESEC are available from the LESEC website.
The interactive lectures are currently based on the article of Deslauriers et al. (2011) on Improved learning in a Large-Enrollment Physics Class that appeared in Science. This comes down to the use of a number of different techniques of which the most important are pre-reading assignments, pre-class quizzes, the use of clicker questions and in-class group tasks, allowing for just in time teaching (which I think is a bit of an excessive word for what it is, but ok).
Students can receive bonuses by completing pre-class quizzes and by answering in-class questions.
Students (or others) who have suggestions or remarks concerning the way these lectures are organised can always leave a comment here!
