Workshops and Events
Workshops and events organized by the Instructional 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 reading group. Workshops and events are interactive and typically 60-minutes in length. In addition to our semester workshops schedule, Instructional designers can provide customized workshops for departmental groups.
Course Design Institute
Offered several times a year, the Course Design Institute is a three day intensive workshop designed to provide instructors with the tools, skills, collegial support, and dedicated time to design or re-design a course.
Faculty Book Group
Each semester the Instructional Designers organize a faculty reading group to work through titles such as "How Learning Works: Seven Research Principles for Smart Teaching" and “Teaching Naked: How Moving Technology Out of Your College Classroom Will Improve Student Learning.” Books are provided. Limited seating available.
Faculty Lunch Bites
Faculty Lunch Bites are informal gatherings held each month by the instructional designers during the semester to discuss topics related to teaching and learning. A short reading is distributed before the date, and faculty are welcome to bring their lunches.
