CATL offers new training

The Center for the Advancement of Teaching and Learning (CATL) invites faculty and staff to participate in a live, three-part online course, provided by Educause, on the topic of “Promoting Effective Teaching and Learning Ecosystems through Research and Proven Practice.” Interested parties can learn more about the event here. The remote sessions will be hosted in IS 1004 on the following dates: From noon to 1:30p.m. Nov. 21 and 29, and Dec. 6. Feel free to bring your lunch.

Two other end of semester events from CATL

The Center for the Advancement of Teaching and Learning has two items to be aware of as the end of the semester approaches. First, apply for the online teaching fellows. As in the past, there are two tracks: the starter (open to anyone), and the advanced (for those who have taught a course twice online and would like to earn Quality Matters Certification.) The deadline to apply is Dec. 2. The application forms can be found on the CATL website:

CATL will host a syllabus-writing workshop at noon, Dec.  2 in IS 1004. The workshop will take a “choose-your-own-adventure” approach, allowing participants to decide which is most relevant to them: aligning teaching style with departmental expectations; aligning course objectives with activities; scaffolding assignments; integrating technology into your syllabus; dealing with the mid-semester doldrums, and more. Consider bringing a syllabus that is a work-in-progress.
