Small Changes, Big Impact: Evidence-Based Teaching Strategies

Interested in trying new teaching strategies, but not sure where to start? Looking to refresh your pedagogy without redesigning your entire course? Wondering what education research tells us about effective teaching practices? In this pilot series, we’ll discuss evidence-based teaching tools and techniques that improve student learning and can be implemented in class tomorrow!

NOTE: Each session is limited to 20 participants. Priority will be given to current instructors. 

Remote Teaching Circles

Come join colleagues in a new pilot series to bring our ideas and experiences together: Remote Teaching Circles (RTC). Hosted by the Center for Teaching and Learning, RTCs are designed as an informal means to gather small groups of faculty for collaborative learning and discussion around a particular topic related to remote teaching and learning.
