We are in the process of developing a number of Faculty Interest Groups for Spring 2015. These interest groups might be focused around a specific topic or interest related to teaching and learning (e.g., specifications grading, self-regulated learning, etc). Faculty members who request participation will be asked to develop and share a plan to implement ideas from the group in one of their classes, and to share results. These groups will be limited in size, and the Teaching and Learning Center will provide support for a group facilitator and for resources for the group (e.g, up to 8 copies of a book or other resource).
(These groups will meet at least three times during Spring semester, and will report back to the Teaching and Learning Center about goals and implementation plans).
Pre-semester Course Tune-Up
Join the Teaching and Learning Center in an open lab session, where you can work on getting your class ready for spring semester, with hands-on help from the Teaching and Learning Center. The focus will be on tips and tricks in optimizing use of Sakai and media, and the sessions will be led by Bryant Serres. Participant questions and interests will guide the sessions.
