Teaching Workshops

These workshops focus on practical, concrete strategies for common teaching tasks, challenges, and opportunities.  These sessions draw on research-based best practices from the literature on teaching and learning and help participants consider ways to apply those best practices in their teaching.

Teaching Workshops are typically a mix of presentation, large group discussion, small group activities, and times for individual reflection.
