    AT Program: The Teaching Portfolio Required Workshop

    This workshop explains and demonstrates how to document and reflect on the knowledge and skills gained from your teaching experience through developing a professional teaching portfolio.

    AT Program: Think Hybrid: Conceptualizing a Hybrid Course Elective Workshop

    This workshop will introduce participants the spectrum of hybrid approaches, including evidence-based approaches to hybrid design and the advantages and disadvantages of the various approaches. We will explore tools and pedagogical strategies that can be used to integrate online and f2f components of hybrid design. The workshop includes a hands-on segment where participants begin brainstorming and designing their own hybrid course, paying particular attention to how how the online and face-to-face components of their course will be integrated. Participants are encouraged to bring their laptops and a course syllabus.

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.
