Teaching Support Workshops

Are you interested in finding out how the science of learning can change your teaching practice?

Our workshops will show you how.

The research on how students learn can inform our teaching in a variety of ways, but the vastness of this literature can be overwhelming. This workshop series will explore four facets of student learning and each will provide concrete strategies for enhancing student learning, whether you teach face-to-face, online or hybrid courses. Each workshop will incorporate the expertise of teaching and learning professionals from the Center for Educational Innovation, Academic Technology Support Services, the Libraries and the Disability Resource Center.
