Teaching@IUPUI: Creating a Syllabus

Thursday, March 10  | Online - Adobe Connect  | 11:30 - 12:30 p.m.
Register » Organizer(s): Terri Tarr  and Presenter(s): James Gregory, Terri Tarr

A syllabus is often the first impression that students form of a course, and it serves both faculty and student as a guide to and contract for the semester. A well designed and personalized syllabus can help faculty set the proper tone while simultaneously helping them avoid having to repeatedly answer basic student questions about expectations, policies, and deadlines. By examining syllabi from various disciplines, this online mini-workshop will offer tips and considerations for effective syllabus design, show example syllabi, and include time for questions and discussion.

Teaching@IUPUI: Documenting Your Teaching

Thursday, March 31  | Online - Adobe Connect  | 11:30 - 12:30 p.m.
Register » Organizer(s): Terri Tarr  and Presenter(s): Douglas Jerolimov, Richard Turner

This session introduces faculty and graduate students to best practices of documenting one’s teaching. Participants will examine different approaches to capture evidence of teaching and learning, and to make the case for teaching achievements. Participants will consider how to shape their evolution as teachers through the use of student course evaluations, peer reviews of teaching, and other means of measuring student learning.

Global Learning at the Course Level

Friday, April 8  |  UL 1125M  | 10:00 - 12:00 p.m.
Register » Organizer(s): James Gregory  and Presenter(s): James Gregory, Leslie Bozeman

This workshop will equip faculty to define global learning outcomes for their courses and to incorporate into their courses global issues relevant to their disciplinary context. In addition, participants will draft plans for implementing and assessing global learning outcomes. The workshop will last two hours, and will be a joint offering between the IUPUI Center for Teaching and Learning and the IUPUI Office of International Affairs.

Teaching@IUPUI: Evidence-based Instructional Practices in STEM

Wednesday, April 13  | Online - Adobe Connect  | 11:30 - 12:30 p.m.
Register » Organizer(s): Terri Tarr  and Presenter(s): Anusha S Rao, Douglas Jerolimov

Evidence-based instructional practices are research-supported methods of teaching that foster high levels of student learning and retention in STEM fields. These active learning strategies are rooted in principles of how people learn and may be successfully adapted to different disciplines. This webinar will focus on two such evidence-based instructional practices, Peer Instruction and Problem-Based Learning (PBL). Using examples drawn from different disciplines, participants will be equipped to implement a Peer Instruction or PBL strategy for an assignment in a course of their own, and discuss techniques to assess student learning gains.
