Teaching and Learning Workshops

The CTL offers workshops, seminars, and conversations for instructors on a variety of teaching and learning topics (see below for a list of past offerings).  They are designed to meet the needs of both seasoned professionals and newcomers.  Each session offers the opportunity to discuss shared experiences and knowledge with colleagues.

Spring 2015


“How do International Students Experience Learning at UW?  Implications for UW Instructors”
Friday, May 8  |  12:30-2:00  |  HUB Rm. 250, Seattle Campus  |  Doors open at 12:00

Registration has closed.  Interested individuals are welcome to walk-in and register at the door.  Please go directly to HUB 250.

Over the last decade the UW has seen an increase in the number of international students. Although we often hear that these students’ academic experiences differ from those in their home countries, rarely do we get to hear in-depth accounts from students about their own learning experiences.

Join the CTL in a conversation co-led by Wei Zuo (Ph.D. Candidate, English).  Zuo will begin by sharing her dissertation research on Chinese students’ academic experiences at UW, including interviews with the students, their professors, and TAs.  We will use Zuo’s findings as a springboard for an engaging discussion of effective ways to help our international students – and all UW students – learn.

Light snacks and beverages will be served.


This conversation is open to all faculty, graduate students, and staff from the UW Bothell, Seattle, and Tacoma campuses.

Registration has now closed.  We welcome those who are interested to register at the door.  Please go directly to HUB 250.


Contact Christine Sugatan at ( with any questions, if you are interested in facilitating a workshop, or if you have suggestions for future topics.
