    AT Program: Assessment and Grading Required Workshop

    In this workshop, participants will explore the theory and practice of assessing student learning, including ways to fairly and effectively grade student work. Participants will complete a Teaching Goals Inventory designed to help instructors be explicit about their goals for students' learning, and will be exposed to Classroom Assessment Techniques (CATs) to use as ungraded feedback throughout the semester. The workshop will also touch on your responsibilities with regard to the Honor System at Georgetown and how best to prevent plagiarism in student work.

    Teaching, Learning, and Innovation Summer Institute (TLISI)

    CNDLS is excited to announce our annual Teaching, Learning, and Innovation Summer Institute (TLISI) to take place May 22-25, 2017. TLISI offers faculty and staff from all campuses the opportunity to explore strategies for teaching and learning, including innovative and inclusive pedagogies, technology enhanced learning, and teaching to the whole person. Recent events highlight how important these approaches can be in building students’ capacity for democratic discourse and action. This year’s theme encourages the Georgetown community to consider the changing nature of teaching and learning and how we might embrace complexity, diversity and change both on the Hilltop and across our nation.

Please note that, while Apprenticeship in Teaching (AT) workshops are open to faculty, they are designed for graduate students. Presentations and many of the exercises are designed for instructors with relatively little teaching experience. Some workshops are more appropriate than others for those with more teaching experience. Faculty with a particular interest in one of the AT workshops should contact James Olsen before registering.
