In this workshop, participants will examine effective, research-based teaching practices. Specifically, they will address several teaching-related questions, such as:
- How can instructors design their courses to maximize student learning?
- How can we motivate our students?
- What are some strategies for creating assessments?
- How can instructors grade more effectively and efficiently?
- How can instructors make their learning environments more inclusive?
The session will be highly interactive, with time for discussion as well as time to work through some of these issues in participants’ own teaching contexts.
At the end of the workshops, participants should be able to:
- create formative and summative assessments.
- apply the research on grading to their own courses.
- describe a rationale for inclusive teaching and the impact of classroom climate on learning.
- design a course that incorporates the research on how students learn.
