Drop-in workshops and discussions are held throughout the semester. Current series include: Teaching and Learning Discussions, Technology-Enhanced Academics Talks, Teaching Flexibly and Accessibly, Faculty in Conversation: Antiracist Pedagogy, and Educational Technology Workshops.
We offer several opportunities for faculty to engage in community with others as they explore their teaching. These include semester-long learning communities with other instructors, and Pedagogical Partners, a unique program that pairs faculty with undergraduate partners to reflect on and refine teaching practices throughout the semester.
The Summer Institute on Course (Re)Design helps instructors examine principles of how people learn, identify assessment strategies to strengthen student learning, and refine components of classes that can be made more inclusive.
