Backward Design – Course Development Workshop 11-13-13

Backward Design–Course Development Workshop

Wednesday, November 13, 5:30-7 pm in MLIB, STUDIO A

How do we design a course so that we know for sure that we will know that the students know what we want them to know? If that sounds confusing, you are in the right place. Presenters Sarah Anderson and Sara Cooper (ILLC) will share strategies showcased at the June 2013 Institute for Teaching and Learning in Long Beach.

Join us in MLIB Studio A on Wednesday, November 13th, from 5:30-7 pm. Bring your laptop and have in mind a Spring 2014 course you want to work on.

Classroom Management Workshop

Classroom Management Workshop, This Thursday!

Why aren’t students doing what I want them to do? What do I need to do differently to keep the students on task, in line, and learning? Join us this Thursday, October 24, from 4-5:30 in MLIB Studio A for three perspectives on classroom management from Juni Banerjee-Stevens (Counseling), Celeste Jones (Social Work), and Mary Soto (Education). The presentation will be followed by an exchange of ideas with fellow participants.
