What is Involved?

Seminar Goals:

  • Build relationships with your faculty colleagues to mentor and support each other as you reconsider your courses.
  • Learn teaching and learning scholarship to improve your courses.
  • Articulate the most important goals that you have for your students’ learning and how to best structure your course activities and assignments to meet those goals.
  • Develop strategies for understanding what your students have learned and how to use this information to make your courses even more dynamic and effective over time.

Faculty participants commit to:

  • fully participating in all sessions
    • Individual consult: We will schedule a 30 minute consultation with you prior to the seminar in order to discuss your course and goals.  We will use this to tailor the seminar for this faculty cohort.
