Featured Workshop

Fall 2021 Teaching Effectiveness Institute: Teaching Strategies for Impact and Attention by James Lang

August 13, 2021, 9 am - noon and 1 pm - 4 pm

Implementing innovative teaching strategies can seem overwhelming, and after a year of constant upheaval, it may be daunting to contemplate any more changes to your teaching. Instead of adding to this fatigue, this year's Teaching Effectiveness Institute is focused on small, deliberate strategies you can employ that have a significant impact on your students' ability to focus and to learn.

The institute will be delivered in two half-day sessions, so you control the length of your commitment by registering for one or both of the sessions. We are planning to hold the institute in-person, in keeping with all university policies and protocols to do so safely. For the first time, however, the institute will also be live-streamed for anyone who is unable or uncomfortable to attend in-person.
