Upcoming Events (More Events)
Do you follow the science of learning when you teach? A course design conversation with Lesya Hassall, Program Coordinator (CELT), is a fun, interactive session on the fundamentals of purposeful teaching using the science of successful learning.
Why should I assess? I'm already grading! Although grading is an integral part of teaching, grades rarely can identify those elements of teaching that are effective or need improvement. Learning Assessment Techniques (LATs) are short and simple strategies for assessing student learning throughout the semester.
The book Powerful Learning Tools: Unleash the Science of Learning by Pooja K. Agarwal and Patrice M. Bain (2019) discusses practical ways to introduce retrieval, spaced out, interleaving and metacognition-driven practice to any classroom.
This topic-based teaching and learning community meets throughout the academic year. We work as teams to optimize application exercises, readiness assurance tests, peer evaluation, and other aspects of course design, and also invite speakers to facilitate discussions of TBL theory, research and classroom application.
How do students learn best in your discipline? Where can you publish the way you solved instructional problems? You are invited to share and discuss DBER journal articles, seek feedback as you begin designing your own educational research projects, and form collaborations with participants from other disciplines.
Are your students engaged? Do they take ownership of the material and build connections between what they know and what they're learning? Award-winning professor, Julia Dominguez, World Languages and Cultures, will show you how she integrates high academic challenge with creative, relevant projects in a complex upper-level class.
