Gearing Up for Spring: Reflecting, Designing and Aligning

  1. Wednesday, January 8th, 20149:00am - 10:30am

We’ll start this session by reflecting on courses you’re currently teaching as a way to focus your thoughts for the new semester. Using these reflections, we’ll work on identifying goals for your spring semester courses and potential strategies for meeting these goals. Those wishing to go deeper with creating and evaluating assignments, will want to attend the next session, Creating Assignments and Assessing Learning.

Please bring course materials you’d like to focus on (e.g., syllabus, assignments, rubrics), either old, new or under construction.


As the new year begins and the new semester approaches, it is a great time to reflect on the successes and challenges of our teaching. In these workshops we offer the opportunity to take the time to capture your thoughts on changes needed in your upcoming courses, to think about that new course you will be teaching or to re-think the one you’ll be re-teaching! We will also take advantage of this reflective time to begin work on crafting a philosophy of teaching statement.
