New: Traveling Workshops

This semester the Center for Teaching & Learning Excellence is offering two high-interest workshops at different times and locations around campus. Our goal is to better support the pedagogical needs of all university faculty by diversifying when and where we offer our workshops.

Workshops Descriptions

High Impact Practices in Engaged Teaching and Learning
High-Impact Practices (HIPs) exemplify enriching educational experiences that enhance student engagement and improve student success. They are specific pedagogies that have positive effects on deep learning as a result of engagement with the material and the use of reflection as a learning tool. HIPs vary widely depending on the discipline and the academic institution and often require considerable time and effort, facilitate application of learning outside of the classroom, require meaningful interactions and collaboration with faculty and other students, and necessitates frequent and substantive formative and evaluative feedback. When effective, HIPs improve student success and ultimately retention.

Inclusive Teaching in the Classroom
As our classrooms become increasingly diverse, faculty and instructors are tasked with learning teaching strategies to support the learning of students with a wide range of backgrounds. In this workshop, faculty will explore inclusive teaching strategies, how to engage students in dialogue around challenging topics, and ways to respond to heated moments in the classroom.

Friday September 13th
9:30am - 11:30am, MLIB Faculty Center

Facilitator: Liz Rogers PhD, Higher Education Instructional Consultant

As our classrooms become increasingly diverse, faculty and instructors are tasked with learning teaching strategies to support the learning of students with a wide range of backgrounds. In this workshop, faculty will explore inclusive teaching strategies, how to engage students in dialogue around challenging topics, and ways to respond to heated moments in the classroom.

Friday September 20th
9:30am - 11:30am, MLIB Faculty Center

Facilitator: Alyson Froehlich PhD, Higher Education Instructional Consultant

Friday October 18th
9:30am - 11:30am, MLIB Faculty Center

Facilitator: Holly Sue Hatfield, Graduate Fellow, Center for Teaching and Learning Excellence

  • Identify your central pedagogical commitments
  • Explore methods of non-linear course material presentation
  • Understand the learning benefits of non-linear and unpolished approaches

This workshop presents a “post-modern” lesson planning approach that is an alternative to the linear presentation of content in a prepared slideshow (or individual lessons in a semester-long plan).

Friday October 25th
9:30am - 11:30am, MLIB Faculty Center

Facilitator: CK Miller, Graduate Fellow, Center for Teaching and Learning Excellence

Using learning objectives as a framework, this workshop will review whole-class discussion strategies, introducing different types of class discussions and how they work for different subjects and classroom set- ups.

Friday November 8th
9:30am - 11:30am, MLIB Faculty Center

Facilitator: Cecile Paskett, Instructional Designer, Teaching & Learning Technologies 

Online courses require media content, yet most faculty are not media professionals. This workshop is a crash course in lecture production for instructors who have little experience recording course videos. Topics covered will include a discussion of why instructors should record lecture videos, best practices for lecture recording, how to use Canvas video tools, and ideas for lectures that go beyond the ‘talking head’ format.

Friday November 15th
9:30am - 11:30am, MLIB Faculty Center

Facilitator: Rebekah Cummings
