Faculty Commons to host summer workshops for those who teach at UD
University of Delaware Faculty Commons “Keep Calm and Teach On” event will return for the third year in August. The annual semester-planning event is open to all those who teach at the University, including faculty, adjunct faculty, and graduate teaching assistants.
Over 40 informative sessions will be available from Tuesday, Aug. 15, to Thursday, Aug. 17, and Tuesday, Aug. 22, to Friday, Aug. 25. This year, the sessions will cover Canvas and Sakai tips, syllabus clinics, best i>Clicker practices and other teaching topics.
On Wednesday Aug. 23, Agnes Ly, assistant professor of psychological and brain sciences, will lead a “Small Teaching” workshop, including hands-on activities that will help participants implement some of the principles described by James Lang (Assumption College) at the 2017 Faculty Institute. Lang’s book, Small Teaching, talks about small, impactful changes teachers can implement to improve student learning.
Registration for all sessions is now open on the “Keep Calm and Teach On” website.
Faculty Commons provides teaching support year-round, but this two-week event gives instructors the answers to many teaching questions and provides a forum through which educators can explore new technologies for the classroom and learn about instructional grant opportunities.
Those who have questions about the event can contact Faculty Commons at 302-831-0640 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Faculty Commons is open for appointments and walk-ins all summer, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday in 116 Pearson Hall.
