Fall Teaching Talks, Sept. 2016

You are invited to participate in a series of informal teaching talks on Mondays and Fridays throughout the Fall 2016 and Spring 2017 semesters.  We would like to create an environment in which participants can comfortably share teaching concerns and discuss techniques and strategies with colleagues, experts, and CETL staff.  All sessions will take place in CETL’s Innovation Room (Rowe 319), a casual meeting space in the heart of the Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning.  All UConn instructors—graduate students, TAs, and APIRs, as well as adjunct, tenure-track and tenured faculty—are encouraged to attend.  The fall 2016 schedule is as follows:

  • Monday, October 3 (12:30 – 1:45 p.m.)—Understanding students
  • Friday, October 7 (10:00 – 11:15 a.m.)—Creativity in the classroom
  • Friday, October 14 (10:00 – 11:15 a.m.)—Motivating students
  • Monday, October 24 (12:30 – 1:45 p.m.)—Classroom management
  • Friday, November 4 (10:00 – 11:15 a.m.) —Active learning strategies
  • Monday, November 7 (12:30 – 1:45 p.m.)—Conducting class discussions
  • Friday, December 2 (10:00 – 11:15 a.m.)—Feedback and assessment strategies
