With the fall semester approaching, new and returning faculty are busy preparing for the first day of classes by updating the syllabus and organizing lesson plans for their courses. However, it is also a great time to consider new ideas that can help enhance teaching effectiveness. The Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) is offering a series of interactive workshops and roundtable discussions to help with these preparations at its annual Fall Teaching Kickoff. There are four workshops being offered to help faculty gear up for the start of the fall semester.
- “Syllabus Clinic for New Instructors,” is an opportunity for faculty to receive feedback and guidance on their syllabus drafts and make last minute tweaks to support student learning.
- “Creating Conditions for Well-Being in Georgia Tech’s Learning Environments” will engage faculty in conversation about practical strategies they can employ to create a learning environment that promotes student well-being.
- “Smarter Feedback: Providing Enhanced Feedback through Digital Technology,” will explore options for giving students feedback, leveraging the tools available through Canvas.
- “Graduating Global Citizens: A Roundtable Discussion,” will engage participants in discussion about how to help students develop global perspectives, address global challenges and navigate cross-cultural contexts.
These workshops will take place in the Clough Undergraduate Learning Commons (CULC) between 9am and 2:30pm, each workshop is ninety minutes long), on August 12. You can learn more about the Fall Teaching Kickoff and registering for workshops here.
