"The seminar was the best and most productive time I've ever spent with
academic colleagues discussing teaching and pedagogy. I suggest to any
faculty who haven't taken this seminar, that it is the best investment you
can make in your own teaching, regardless of how much or how little you have
- James Luke, Economics
This course provides an opportunity to...
- Connect with faculty from across disciplines to share, explore, and reflect upon current teaching and learning practices.
- Experience various teaching and learning strategies from a student's perspective.
- Apply newly learned techniques with the support of colleagues.
- To learn more about this course, view a brief video.
A collaborative approach is used to model various teaching and learning strategies and create a faculty learning community. Whether you are new to teaching, or have taught for a long time, you won't want to miss this unique experience!
"Initially, I was hesitant to take the seminar, afraid it might be too
theoretical without any direct application ... But from the very first
session, you set me straight! In every session I learned something that I
will use to be a better (more effective) teacher.""
- Mobashera Hallam, Developmental Math

"...rediscovering my passion for teaching. That is what was lost and
what was found in this seminar … This is where you can connect with the
college and really feel like a part of it. This seminar is refreshing,
inspiring and validating."
