Open only to: Part Time Academic Staff with Teaching Responsibilities

Date: Friday, July 26, 2013
Time: 10:00 AM - 2:30 PM
Location: Union 191

You are invited to meet other part-time academic staff with teaching responsibilities at an interactive, half-day retreat designed to help you succeed as an instructor. Your professional development is important to the Center for Instructional and Professional Development (CIPD) and we hope that you will join us to explore practical teaching strategies and engage in thoughtful exchange with other colleagues. Through discussion and small group activities, we will examine the topic of making higher level thinking clear and interesting for students. How do you define critical thinking in your course? How would students define it? How can you help students move from summarizing information theyve found to thinking critically about multiple points of view, including their own? How do you actively engage students in critical and higher level thinking? How can you effectively assess critical thinking? You will receive materials during the retreat. Lunch provided. Contact Connie Schroeder for further information at connies@uwm.edu or 229-5764.
