Early Career Teaching Tips Potluck

Friday, March 19, 2021 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm

A few months into the semester, and we're all probably about ready for a teaching tip or two to invigorate our courses. During this "virtual potluck," each participant will share one teaching idea, or they'll bring a specific teaching question to the group for brainstorming. Although the exact content of the session is impossible to predict (because it depends on the participants), past early-career discussions of this sort have focused on synchronous and asynchronous engagement, managing student emails, strategies for efficient grading, specific teaching technologies, and more.

Small Teaching Book Club

Wednesday, April 7, 2021 - 3:30pm to 4:30pm
Online in Zoom

Are you interested in invigorating your teaching but don't have much time? Would you like to discuss some innovative ideas with your colleagues across campus? James Lang has plucked a multitude of options built on the science of learning to help anybody tune up their class, or the whole course, with a small, easy to use intervention. It could be a simple 5-minute in-class or online exercise, or a tweek in the course design, or a better way to communicate with students, but everyone is bound to find something that will improve their course for themselves and their students?

Reflection and Inclusive Teaching, Why You Matter

Thursday, April 8, 2021 - 9:30am to 10:45am
Online in Zoom

Inclusive teaching methods and technologies are within easy reach as we try to make sure all students have equitable educational experiences in our classrooms; faculty are trying to “get it right”. In our push to implement teaching styles, tools, and inclusive language, it is easy to forget that teaching begins with you and all that you bring to your students and colleagues. In this session, we will explore reflective practices and how they contribute to an inclusive environment. Registration Link
