Workshops - Fall 2014


Faculty & Academic Staff

CIPD offers unique workshops each semester, some designed for Faculty and Academic Staff, and others for Graduate TAs. This fall, CIPD will offer a book discussion series and faculty/staff learning community pilot.  Faculty workshops will focus on researched principles and practical strategies using the well-received book, Teaching Naked: How Moving Technology Out of Your Classroom Will Improve Student Learning (2012). Throughout the fall, participants will explore chapters in multiple sessions and explore tips and techniques for motivating students.  In addition, the "Designing Your Own Course" series helps instructors create or significantly revise a course for an upcoming semester using the Learner-centered Course Design booklet with examples of each course design component and begin using the seven-part design process. Participants in the "Active Learning Classrooms" series will explore small group strategies and examples designed specifically for active learning classrooms.  Finally, CIPD will offer an orientation for its certificate program and a pilot for a faculty/staff learning community.

Graduate TAs & PAs

This fall will offer two kinds of workshops for Graduate TAs professional development and a book discussion. In "Developing Your Statement of Teaching Philosophy," we will look at some samples and proceed through a sequence of writing and discussion activities designed to help participants identify what is of value in their own teaching and how that is represented in concrete activities in the classroom. In "Creating a Teaching Portfolio," participants will explore the elements needed in a teaching portfolio, offer strategies for developing a portfolio that represents a learner-focused instructor, and explore several on-line services and tools for maintaining a portfolio through graduation and beyond. Finally, we will offer a book discussion that offers tips and strategies for writing abstracts of research.
