“Flipping” the Classroom
Educators who plan to “flip” part or all of a course in Spring, Summer, or Fall are encouraged to register. In these sessions we will discuss ways replace in-class lectures with more engaging activities, and the possibility of using lecture-capture technology to provide expert content outside the classroom. Staff from UW-IT will be available to provide ideas and support.
Section 1: Mondays, 2:15 – 3:30, April 8 – May 20
Section 2: Fridays, 1:30 – 2:30, April 12 – May 31
Active Learning Spaces
Tuesdays, 3:30 – 4:30, April 30 – June 4
Two state-of-the-art classrooms are being built in Odegaard, providing educators with an unique opportunity to explore how space and technology can promote student learning. Such classrooms can support case-based and team-based learning, guided inquiry, peer learning, and just-in-time teaching. Instructors who will redesign part or all of a course to be taught in such rooms are encourage to register.
Thursdays, 11:30 – 12:30, April 11 – May 30
Specifically for graduate students and post-docs, this learning community will explore teaching and learning topics, issues, skills, and professional development.
Faculty and Staff of Color
Mondays, 11:30 – 1, beginning April 8
This FPLC brings together faculty and staff of color to discuss and reflect on a wide variety of issues, including classroom practices, pedagogical philosophies, negotiating race and white privilege as people of color, intersection of identities, research agendas, funding structures, and institutional hierarchies. Our goal is to create community and share ideas with each other in an open and respectful arena where our whole self will be welcome.
