Summary: Quality learning begins with quality teaching. Many university professors enter the classroom with little to no practice or training in the skills needed to successfully deliver information in the classroom, particularly those in the sciences. This seminar series is designed to provide a brief overview of educational philosophy, psychology, and research supporting a variety of effective teaching practices in the adult classroom and to enhance the teaching skills of current faculty.
Program description: This seminar series is a 12-session series over the course of two full semesters (fall and spring). Each session will be 60 minutes long and provide lunch for those attendees who have registered for the full series. Others are welcome to attend seminars covering topics of interest and they may bring their own lunch. Space is limited. Please see registration page for dates.
