One challenge for lecturers is finding large blocks of time to put their ideas for teaching into action. In this new series designed for associated faculty, we use 15-minute online meetings spread out over the term to make teaching development manageable. Discuss challenges and questions about a topic, review foundational strategies, then plan and share small changes to implement each month. Drop in for some fresh ideas on your lunch break or attend the whole series as a way to complete a large project across the term.
