We are pleased to accept applications for three learning communities through the Ohio State Teaching Enhancement Program (OSTEP) for the 2017-18 academic year. Applications for the Lecturer Learning Community, Course Design Learning Community and Mid-Career and Senior Faculty Learning Community will be accepted through Monday (3/6). Members have the opportunity to connect regularly with colleagues from a multitude of disciplines to discuss teaching-related matters and focus on individual goals and/or projects.
See University of Michigan’s blog post on “Returning to the Classroom After the Election” that has suggestions for instructors who wish to simply acknowledge the intense emotions and perspectives, as well as links for those who wish to hold more substantive discussions.
Registration is now open for our upcoming Course Design Institutes. Join colleagues from across the university as you take a big-picture look at a course of your choice and engage in a hands-on process of (re)-designing it to more effectively and purposefully help students learn.
