"Tilting the Classroom: Engaging Students in Lectures and Online"

This talk will cover 18 straightforward practices that I use to promote student engagement in large mathematics lectures.  These practices can be used independently or together, and I will provide lots of examples and light-touch reference to findings from the psychology of learning.  I will also discuss how I have adapted my teaching to cope with online and partially online teaching while, as far as possible, encouraging active student participation and keeping my workload manageable.
