Spencer to reopen Saturday

Following a Friday afternoon fire, the University of Delaware's Spencer Laboratory will reopen at 8 a.m., Saturday, Aug. 30, with the exception of Suites 131 and 133, which will be closed until further notice.

App for safety

UD now has a smartphone safety app that helps prevent crime and enables police better respond to incidents, making students even safer while at school.

During the October event, experienced faculty members will provide hands-on demonstrations for participants to engage in active learning strategies. Twenty-minute sessions include “Bookending the Lecture,” “Concept Mapping” and “Flipping the Classroom.”

New faculty members are encouraged to attend, but all are welcome. Registration can be found online

The fall events are focused on teaching topics identified by new UD faculty while the three spring events will focus broadly on enhancing teaching and improving student learning and assessment.

All but the Dec. 7 session will be held in 208 Gore Hall.

Fall sessions are scheduled Oct. 5 and Nov. 2, with the Dec. 7 session a mini-conference sponsored by Academic Technology Services that will meet from 9 a.m.-1 p.m.

Spring sessions are scheduled Feb. 8, March 8, April 5 and May 3.

Future sessions, with links to register, can be found on the Center for Teaching and Assessment of Learning calendar
