Teaching Techniques Workshop

The Fall 2020 semester will be unlike any other. The Teaching Techniques workshop is a place where faculty can gather to prepare high-quality, accessible learning experiences for all students.

The Workshop addresses the following topics:

  • Setting Expectations and Creating a Course Culture from Day One
  • Course Design Elements: Syllabi, Welcome Letter, Rubrics, Goals vs. Objectives, and Engaging Assessment
  • Instructional Design: Beginning at the End with Backward Design
  • Differentiating Instruction: Reaching the Diverse Students in Our Classrooms
  • How Do We Know Effective Teaching When We See It? Peer Observations of Teaching

In addition, the Workshop will model the use of various instructional technologies. Participants will have the opportunity to conduct a brief teaching demonstration for feedback.

Keys to Success in the Workshop:

  • Attendance at daily synchronous Zoom sessions is preferred; however, if you aren’t able to attend a session each Zoom session will be recorded. All materials are available to all participants before, during and after the Workshop.
  • Daily activities in Blackboard are due by the end of the workshop week.
  • Contact a facilitator with any questions or concerns.
