  Abstract: During the March 2013 TYC-NFE workshop, I learned several teaching techniques to get students more engaged in class. I left very excited to try these out in my classes. While these changes have completely transformed by classes, there have been challenges, especially pertaining to class size, classroom architecture, and lack of administrative support. In this talk, I will describe these challenges and why, despite the challenges, I would never go back to a traditional lecture.
