Getting Started with Scholarship of Teaching and Learning
Tuesday, February 3, 2015 – 11:00 AM-12:30PM
Location: Science 4127
In this session we will discuss tools and techniques that are commonly used to measure change in the college STEM environment with the goal of helping faculty answer questions about their own teaching in their own context. We will discuss ways to assess student learning, retention, social interaction and satisfaction. We will also discuss ways to assess changes in a faculty member’s teaching practices and attitudes about learning.
Creating Media to Facilitate Student Learning
Tuesday, March 3, 2015 – 10:00AM-11:30AM
Location: North Classroom 2206

Craig Lanning invites us the Prototyping and Design lab for hands-on demonstrations of how to create podcasts, videos and screencasts. These media resources can be used to augment your teaching and reach our media-savvy students.
