TEXT SIZE

9:31 a.m., March 26, 2014--For University of Delaware faculty members, documenting teaching effectiveness is important for improving the shape and quality of teaching and a way of summarizing their teaching performance. 

However, selecting and reflecting on the most effective pieces of evidence to use for several different purposes can be daunting.

New name, new approach

UD's Office of Communications and Marketing has changed its name to Communications and Public Affairs to better reflect its mission and new goals to enhance the University's external outreach.

Faculty meet up

UD's Horn Program invites all faculty members with interests in design, innovation, technology and creativity to attend an informal meet up on Nov. 21 at the Venture Development Center.

A session on the subject will be the focus of the First Friday Roundtable on Teaching in April.

Because of spring break, April’s “First” Friday Roundtable session will actually be held on the second Friday. It will meet from 3:30-5 p.m., Friday, April 11, in 208 Gore Hall.

During the April event, participants will identify different ways to document teaching and explore what is learned from various kinds of evidence. Session leaders will discuss methods and resources for collecting, interpreting, and organizing various teaching materials.

Faculty and graduate students should register to join the conversation.

The First Friday Roundtables are designed and sponsored through a collaboration between Academic Technology Services, the Center for Teaching and Assessment of Learning, and the Institute for Transforming Undergraduate Education

The next Roundtable event, “The Unconference,” will be held May 2 in the new Faculty Commons in 116 Pearson Hall.
