We look forward to your participation.

The end of the academic year offers a fitting venue to reflect on our instructional experiences: What did we learn from our teaching? How did our course modifications impact our students’ learning? The TLS program provides a stimulating campus-wide forum to share instructional practices that advance our students’ learning, exchange ideas with colleagues, and celebrate our accomplishments. Contribute your teaching expertise by offering an interactive session, facilitating a small group-based round table discussion, moderating a panel, or presenting a poster.

Audience: Colleagues from all subject areas who want to be involved in the sessions, they value discussion and exchange of ideas. Please consider including the students’ voice by inviting one or two of your students to join you and contribute their perspective.

Your colleagues are interested to learn about evidence-based practices: What did you learn? What worked well? What did not work so well? What would you do differently? Why, how? While an approach may no longer be novel for you, it may be new and helpful to a colleague!

Resources for creating a poster:

The demonstration of specific ways to increase student participation in online courses. I will definitely incorporate some in my online course.

I got some great ideas on getting students to come to class prepared.

I found the entire day uplifting. The enthusiasm among the faculty was contagious and renewed my interest in being the best teacher possible.

Sessions raised my awareness of gender issues and micro aggressions and it made me more conscious of the need to create an inclusive learning environment.

The poster session was very helpful as a mixer to meet other faculty and talk about their teaching.

I appreciate the opportunity to discuss what I’ve learned with enthusiastic, motivated, intellectually curious, and caring colleagues.
