Fall 2019 Schedule

 

August

Aug. 5-9 - New Faculty Welcome

Wed. Aug. 14 - Professional Development Day: "Teaching Naked Techniques: A Practical Workshop on Designing Better Classes," Jose Bowen, 1:00-4:00 pm, Doc Bryan Lecture Hall
This is a practical and active workshop for all faculty that distills the latest research on how students learn into tested techniques and best practices that work. Decades of research have brought an explosion of knowledge about how human evoluation has shaped the way we process, think, and remember. Technology also provides new ways for students to receive first contact with material, enhanced opportunities to connect and create community, better ways to ensure that students are prepared for class, and new options for the sequence of learning encounters and activities. Teaching is largely a design problem, and we need to design our classes for the brain in the body. This workshop will suggest lots of easy techniques to improve student learning while providing a process to guide faculty in creating better modules and courses.
