Summer Newsletter Schedule

We hope your summer is off to a good start, whether your plans involve work or play.  We do not plan to stick to a regular newsletter schedule over the summer, but will occasionally send out announcements as appropriate.  For example:

CITL Summer Workshop Series: June 12, 14, 19, and 21

Registration is now open for the CITL Summer Workshop series, titled "What You Need to Know: The Essentials of Effective Teaching."  The series as a whole is designed to get new instructors a head start on designing their first course, but any instructor (or future instructor) can attend any part of the series to brush up on their skills or learn something new.  The workshops will be held on June 12, 14, 19, and 21, from 11am to noon, and 12:30pm to 1:30pm each day.  See this flyer for more details.

We are still looking for volunteers for the August Grad Academy

Thanks to everyone who has volunteered already!  Let me highlight some of the areas where we can still use volunteers:

  • Experienced TAs, particularly TAs from the College of Engineering and the College of Business, to run required small group sessions.
  • Experienced instructors to offer concurrent sessions, particularly on the topics of facilitating problem-solving, cross-cultural classroom communication, or incorporating group work into class.
  • TAs or instructors to help facilitate microteaching.  Even TAs with a small amount of experience can help with microteaching.

The Grad Academy is a big event, so if you are interested in helping, even if you don't fit the bullet points above, I promise we have room for you.  See the original text of the call below.

Faculty, academic professionals, and experienced TAs are invited to participate as presenters and facilitators in the Graduate Academy for College Teaching (August 20-21, 2018), CITL's program for new TAs with classroom teaching responsibilities, and the Symposium on Grading & Office Hours (August 21, 2018), our program for those TAs with non-classroom responsibilities. There are opportunities to create your own concurrent session, facilitate a lesson from a pre-existing lesson plan, or facilitate microteaching sessions. Facilitating microteaching is a particularly fun and easy way to volunteer even if you are somewhat new to teaching yourself.  Follow this link to volunteer.
