Workshops and Events

Workshops and events organized by the Learning Experience Designers provide development opportunities for faculty to explore teaching and learning topics. Workshops provide hands-on experience in an interdisciplinary environment where faculty can discover a variety of approaches to what is being discussed. Events are informal meetings bringing together faculty interested in a specific pedagogical approach (e.g., active learning), factors influencing student learning, viewing a live webinar, or a book group. Workshops and events are interactive and typically 60-minutes in length. In addition to our semester workshops schedule, the Learning Experience Designers can provide customized workshops for department or programs.

Recordings of recent workshops can be found on our Resources for Teaching and Learning D2L site.
