    AT Program: Syllabus 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.

    POSTPONED: How to Enhance STEM by Making It Inclusive

    POSTPONED UNTIL FALL 2020
    Instructors often focus on content and pedagogical approaches to improve student engagement and learning in STEM courses. However, there are opportunities related to our students’ sense of belonging and growth mindset that are also an opportunity to support their success. In this workshop, we will discuss different types of social psychological interventions and how to implement them in ways that have been shown to significantly impact the motivation and learning outcomes of all students, especially women and underrepresented minorities in STEM fields.

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.
