Strategies for the First Class

LECTURING - Lecturing: Enhancing Student Learning Series

Given that first impressions are important and, particularly in a large class, difficult to change, this workshop focuses on how to make the first class a teaching environment that creates a positive and engaging beginning to the course that will enhance student learning throughout the course.

Peer-review for teaching enhancement

TEACHING - Teaching Documentation and Recognition Series

Are you considering inviting one of your peers to observe your teaching but are uncertain as to what is involved in the peer-review process? And you may be wondering what the specific objectives are of the peer-review process. In this session, you will be introduced to the five stages of the process: planning, the pre-observation meeting, conducting the teaching observation, the post-observation meeting, and submission of a written report. We will discuss what the expectations are throughout the process, both for the instructor and the peer reviewer. Further, you will engage in discussion about the purpose and objectives of peer review, such as how it can enhance teaching, encourage reflection, and, most importantly, improve student learning.

The Course Syllabus

LECTURING - Lecturing: Enhancing Student Learning Series

This workshop focuses on the course syllabus as a multi-function tool that goes beyond merely serving as a minimal outline of basic course information and indicating the penalties for violating rules. We will explore how the course syllabus can in addition serve as a tool for course design, provide useful information for inclusion in one’s teaching dossier, and enhance student engagement and motivation right from the start.
