Dear Instructional Colleagues,
I’m following up to share more details about the instructional support opportunities offered by the Center for Teaching, Learning and Mentoring. The center’s professional development programs range from the basics of teaching at UW-Madison to deep-focus explorations of important topics. Faculty, instructional academic staff and graduate student instructors of all experience levels are welcome to participate.
- Teaching at UW is a virtual, interactive workshop series designed to support instructors in advancing their course design and instruction. Spring semester topics include fostering community and student interaction, structuring effective group projects and discussions, diversifying course materials, grading and assessment strategies, and promoting student health and wellbeing. Sessions will be held on Fridays, from 10-11:30am throughout the spring semester.
- TeachOnline@UW is an instructor learning community that helps instructors explore and apply research-based online course design and teaching practices through two online courses.
- Madison Teaching and Learning Excellence (MTLE) is a two-semester program designed to help early career faculty succeed with personalized support from a cross-disciplinary community of peers and teaching and learning experts.
- Open Educational Resources (OER): A Hands-On Learning Experience is a two-part, virtual workshop about how to bring more accessible, adaptable and inclusive learning materials into course design. Each session is one hour long, and participants are encouraged to attend both sessions. The sessions are offered in partnership with UW Libraries.
To learn more about these programs and how to participate, visit the center’s website. If you’re not sure which of the above opportunities is right for you or you’re looking for a different kind of engagement or instructional support, request a consultation.
