Group and Team work - Teaching Talks

Monday, December 5, 2016
12:30pm – 1:45pm

Storrs Campus
ROWE 319

You are invited to participate in a series of informal teaching talks on Mondays and Fridays throughout the Fall 2016 and Spring 2017 semesters. We would like to create an environment in which participants can comfortably share teaching concerns and discuss techniques and strategies with colleagues, experts, and CETL staff. All sessions will take place in CETL’s Innovation Room (Rowe 319), a casual meeting space in the heart of the Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning. All UConn instructors—graduate students, TAs, and APIRs, as well as adjunct, tenure-track and tenured faculty—are encouraged to attend. The fall 2016 schedule is as follows:

• Monday, December 5 (12:30 – 1:45 p.m.)—Group and team work

• Monday, December 5 (4:00 – 5:00 p.m.)—Specifications Grading: Maximizing Student Learning and Motivation While Saving Faculty Time

• Friday, December 9 (10:00 – 11:15 a.m.)—Are you new to teaching?

• Monday, December 12 (11:00 – 12:15 p.m.)—Designing Your Syllabus

• Friday, December 16 (11:00 – 12:15 p.m.)—Designing Your Syllabus (repeat session)

• Monday, December 19 (11:00 – 12:15 p.m.)—Looking Ahead: Planning Your Spring Course(s)

Attend all the sessions or choose only those covering the topics that most interest you. Please email Stacey Valliere at (860-486-2686) to register, and contact Suzanne LaFleur if you have questions or would like more information.
