    AT Program: Building Intellectual Communities in Large Classes Elective Workshop

    Teaching a large class can be intimidating. Unsure how to engage students, our default is sometimes to simply deliver information via straight lecture, perhaps with PowerPoint. Engaging students more directly and actively is not only still possible in large classes, but research shows overwhelmingly that it's more effective. One way to do this is to build smaller "intellectual communities" in order to connect the affective with the cognitive. In this workshop Heidi Elmendorf, Associate Professor of Biology at Georgetown and Director of Science Education Outreach, will focus on how to effectively build and make use of these communities in order to improve learning in large classes.

    AT Program: The Syllabus: A Conceptual Tool for Course Design Required Workshop

    Designing a syllabus is much more than picking out your readings. In this workshop we will cover the fundamental components and best practices of good syllabus design through discussion and a hands-on opportunity to practice “backwards design.” Participants should bring a syllabus or ideas for a syllabus to the workshop to develop and receive informal feedback from the group.

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.
