Workshops - Faculty
The Center for Educational Effectiveness has a number of workshop series to support faculty who want to advance, enhance, or fine-tune their teaching. Each experiential workshop series offers practical, evidence-based methods of classroom and laboratory education that you can apply in your classes right away. We have three different series to select from: Innovations in Teaching, Active Learning Elements, and Foundations in Teaching. Below is an overview of our Spring 2017 offerings. Faculty are welcome to attend any number of these stand-alone workshops.Those who attend five or more of the sessions will be awarded a Certificate of Participation for the 2017 Spring Teaching Workshop Series.
If you would like to share your Innovations in Teaching, please contact email@example.com with the subject “Innovations in Teaching” and we’ll follow up with you. This a great way to showcase your teaching strategies and get direct feedback from peers and members of the UC Davis Teaching Community.
Integrating Exploratory Writing to Deepen Disciplinary Understanding
Friday, April 28th from 12:15-1:30pm
Location provided upon registration
A light lunch will be provided
Facilitator: Patricia Turner, Ph.D., Center for Educational Effectiveness
Integrating low-stakes writing assignments into courses can help students both increase understanding of disciplinary content and engage in critical thinking around key concepts. This workshop presents a variety of effective writing activities that enhance student learning without significantly increasing instructor workload. Participants will have the opportunity to construct writing prompts they can use in their own classrooms to engage students in deeper, more complex thinking around course content.
~In response to campus demand, additional seats have been added to this workshop. Space is limited, register soon!~
