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 Fall 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 Fall Teaching Workshop Series. Please find a full listing of all the workshops offered during the fall 2017 quarter here.

If you would like to share your Innovations in Teaching, please contact 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.

A Matrix Approach to Course Planning

Friday, December 1, 2017 from 12:15-1:30pm
Location provided upon registration
Facilitator: Kara Moloney, Ph.D., Academic Assessment Lead
A light lunch will be provided

Equitable and optimal conditions for learning depend on close (and intentional) alignment among educational goals, course (program) objectives, learning outcomes, instructional strategies, and assessment. This hands-on workshop will facilitate exploration of existing (or desired) alignment among participants' course materials with the goal of building individual capacity to intentionally align course outcomes, assignments, and assessment tools to promote student learning.
