The CTL holds a number of workshops, panels, and trainings throughout the academic year. Here’s what’s coming up:
The Transparent Teaching Toolkit (Pt 1)
Monday, August 27th 10-12pm Scripps Hampton Room
Tuesday, August 28th, 1-3pm, Pomona Hahn 101
Transparent teaching has been shown to have significant benefits for both faculty and students, including more equitable student learning outcomes, improved higher-order thinking and metacognitive skills, and even increased faculty job satisfaction (Perry, Hall, and Ruthig 2007; Winkelmes, M. 2013.). This workshop provides participants with an opportunity to discover the principles and benefits of a more transparent classroom, and to learn new ways to incorporate transparency into their assignments, lectures, course documents, and assessments.
Participants in this workshop will:
- Gain a greater understanding of “transparency” as a pedagogy and ethical principle of equitable teaching;
- Consider the benefits of transparent teaching and learning, particularly for underrepresented student populations;
- Build clear outcomes or goals for student learning in at least one course or class meeting, and discuss ways to communicate those goals to students;
- Connect those goals or outcomes to assignments, lectures, activities, and / or assessments.
This workshop is suitable for all faculty and instructional staff, regardless of previous experience with transparent teaching techniques.
