Upcoming Events (More Events)
Are you interested in developing, or enhancing, a service-learning component within your course? You are invited to join this dynamic, interdisciplinary group as we share ideas and best practices of integrating service-learning into the curriculum. These interactive sessions will include topical discussions, readings, and sharing of best practices.
One lesson learned is that Team-Based Learning (TBL) instructors can be better prepared with strategies to help students persist through challenging application exercises when they know more about the mindset characteristics and preferred learning strategies of the students in their course. For example, it can be frustrating for students to discover that there is not a single correct answer to a case study application exercise.
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.
This conversation will be a starting place for thinking through how to implement inclusive pedagogy and learner-centered practices into your syllabus. We will discuss strategies for producing a learner-centered syllabus; as well as, the importance of establishing clear expectations and goals, and building rapport and community in your class.
Learn the underlying principles behind the QM Rubric and the critical elements of the QM quality assurance process. Learn about drafting helpful recommendations as you apply the Rubric to an actual course. QM's flagship workshop on the QM Rubric and its use in reviewing the design of online and blended courses is intended for a broad audience, including but not limited to faculty, instructional designers, administrators, and adjunct instructors.
Scholarly teaching focuses on student learning and is grounded in the subject matter being taught, and in the implementation of effective pedagogies. The scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL) involves framing a research question related to student learning and systematically investigating it.
