Faculty Engagement’s Research-to-Classroom Studio will offer encores of six workshops on teaching practices that are grounded in research and help instructors engage students in deeper, more active learning. This is a chance to catch workshops that have earned feedback such as “well facilitated, thought-provoking” and “stimulating and helpful” and “helpful in my own critical thinking skills.”
In addition, three new workshops offer an introduction to instructional design processes that help instructors plan assignments, activities and assessments that align with course goals, content and student skills.
This series runs from Monday, May 23 through Friday, June 3 with a daily 90-minute workshop at 10am in the Middleton Building. There are no workshops on the weekend and Memorial Day.
Each workshop will include a topic overview, practical teaching strategies, facilitated discussions and time to reflect and discuss your course with colleagues. The series is designed so that people can attend a single workshop or the whole series.
Learn more about each of the workshops and RSVP.
