How Do You Know If Your Students Are Getting It?

Date/Time: Friday, Sept. 16; 10-11:30 a.m.

In this interactive workshop, participants will learn about and experience techniques to collect feedback – early and often – on how well their students are learning what they are being taught. This feedback can aid instructors in adjusting their teaching. Instructors can also share the feedback with their students to help them improve their learning strategies and study habits. These techniques are appropriate to use in teaching undergraduate and graduate students.

So What is SoTL and Why Should I Care?

Date/Time: Friday, Sept. 23, 10 – 11 a.m.

What is SoTL and Why Should I Care? will cover Scholarship of Teaching and Learning basics: e.g., what it is and is not, how it is distinguished from merely good teaching, its impact and audience, as well as how it fits with Webster University’s implementation of the Boyer model of scholarship.
