Upcoming Events

21st Century Teaching Methods

Wednesday, October 18, 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM, CITL Workshop Room (Wells Library East Tower E243)

In this workshop designed for instructors in any discipline, we will explore specific classroom strategies and teaching behaviors that increase student success. From forming teams, managing discussions, and selecting course examples, research on teaching and learning highlights the importance of an explicitly inclusive classroom climate for student learning. This includes the value of learning collaboratively with peers and the benefits of intentionally connecting course content to students’ life experience and goals for the future.

Tuesday, October 17, 1:30 PM - 3:30 PM, CITL Workshop Room (Wells Library East Tower E243)

What happens when students come to class unprepared? What if class time could engage students in higher-order thinking? Regular preparation helps students build responsible habits academically and professionally. Join us to discuss and develop strategies that motivate students to prepare assigned work before class. Leave with accountability activities for use in your class or in your Canvas site.

For Graduate Students: Instructor Diversity: Performance and Perception

Monday, October 30, 12:00 PM - 1:15 PM, CITL Workshop Room (Wells Library East Tower E243)

Do diverse instructors take into consideration their diversity when preparing lesson plans and performing (both in the classroom and while grading/assessing)?

Participants will have the opportunity to discuss current experiences and concerns about the impact of their diversity in the classroom.
