Join the Center for Teaching and Learning to welcome Dr. Freeman Hrabowski, President of the University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC). Dr. Hrabowski leads a campus widely recognized for its culture of embracing academic innovation and inclusive excellence. His keynote, entitled “Institutional Culture Change: Academic Innovation and Inclusive Excellence,” will focus special attention on building a diverse culture of innovation and excellence in STEM fields and the critically important process of institutional culture change. Under Dr. Hrabowski’s leadership, UMBC has produced a number of distinctive initiatives to support and enhance teaching and learning – from infusing entrepreneurship and civic engagement into the curriculum to establishing an academic innovation fund to support faculty as they redesign courses and develop new approaches to help students succeed.

Register» | Organizer: Terri Tarr and Presenters: Doug Jerolimov and James Gregory

This session will help instructors convert their course- and unit-level learning goals into effective student learning outcomes, a practice that organizes both instruction and learning. In this workshop, participants will learn to identify the characteristics of an effective student learning outcome, analyze examples of student learning outcomes, and write their own. Time for questions and discussion will follow at the end.

This webinar is part of the Center for Teaching and Learning’s online mini-workshop series focused on foundational teaching skills, Teaching@IUPUI. Designed for new faculty, adjunct faculty, graduate students, and those looking for a refresher on good teaching practices, the workshops are short, with a brief presentation interspersed with opportunities for interaction and questions. Grounded in current research, the workshops address various teaching topics and provide participants with strategies and resources to make instruction more effective, efficient, and enjoyable. Sessions are scheduled with the time of semester in mind, to keep topics relevant for faculty needs at that time.
