The University of Delaware will hold TA Orientation for incoming graduate teaching assistants on Wednesday, Aug. 20, at Clayton Hall.

Tuition Exchange Program applications for new scholarships for the 2015-16 academic year are now being accepted from UD faculty and staff through the Educational Benefits web form.

The workshop will demonstrate problem-based learning and model ways that PBL can be used effectively in all disciplines, in upper and lower division courses, in public schools or colleges, and in classes of all sizes.

Organizers will begin with a problem and participants will work in teams to experience firsthand what this instructional approach entails. 

Work will then move to the main focus of the program -- writing effective problem-based materials. A goal is that participants will leave the session with new or revised problems for use in their courses.

To learn more about PBL, visit the PBL@UD website.

The workshop is free to UD faculty and staff and public school teachers. For all others, the cost is $295.

Those who are interested in participating in the workshop are encouraged to register early so that organizers can reserve seats accordingly.

The reservation deadline is Jan. 4.

To register, complete the registration form and submit payments by mail.

A webpage is available for information on accommodations and travel.
