Active Learning Classrooms

Mondays, February 5 – April 30 | 2:30pm-4:00pm | Location TBA

The promotion of pervasive active learning and the creation of active learning classrooms on campus have created a need for faculty and instructional staff to develop new skills to use these learning spaces effectively. Participants of this program will recommend training and support options for campus instructors using these active learning classrooms, and will receive a $500 stipend for their time. Successful candidates should already have experience using active learning classrooms. In addition to the weekly sessions, participants may be asked to spend additional time reading articles and/or gathering feedback from others on campus.

Evidence-Based Teaching

Mondays, February 5 – April 30 | 11:30am-1:00pm | 302 Middleton Building

This program invites campus participation to explore how evidence-based teaching impacts learners and instructors. Recent campus planning in the learning analytics domain provides an opportunity to explore one approach to evidence-based teaching. Join us as we examine the emerging paradigm of learning analytics. Faculty and instructional staff who are interested in evidence-based teaching or have experimented with learning analytics processes in their teaching are invited to apply for the program. Participants will receive a $500 stipend for their time, which includes 60-90 minutes prep time each week along with a weekly 90-minute face-to-face session.
