When: September 9-11, 2019, 8:30am-1pm | Crerar Library 390
Who: Faculty, Lecturers, and Other Academic Appointees
Getting ready to teach in the coming academic year? Give your teaching a jumpstart by engaging with other faculty around key pedagogical principles. Over three days, we will explore dimensions of inclusive, learner-centered course design while identifying useful campus resources and supports of teaching and learning. Whether you are new to teaching at UChicago or are looking to rejuvenate your pedagogy after years of experience, you will come away with new ideas and concreate strategies to energize your teaching for the coming year.
Each morning will center around a theme:
1. Designing Inclusive Courses
2. Engaging Students for Learning
3. Leveraging Feedback to Improve Teaching
Sessions will include a mix of faculty discussion, breakout sessions, and hearing from relevant campus offices. Lunches will provide venues for informal conversation with College, Divisional, and School leadership. Unstructured afternoons will provide an opportunity to apply what you learned in the morning to your course planning for the coming year.
An agenda and further details will be available soon. Register here: https://uchicago.co1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_ePq27RJhSaEG9Mh . Registration will close on Friday, August 23, 2019.
