Faculty & Instructors
The Center for Teaching, Learning, and Outreach supports Faculty and Instructors in a variety of ways, and we are always available for individual discussions and consultations. Here are some examples of frequent ways we work with faculty:
- The Faculty Summer Short Course (FSSC) on Course (Re)Design - offered annually.
- Consultations and resources on active learning strategies for class; assessments and assignments that promote learning; mid-quarter feedback from students.
- Choosing and using instructional technologies.
- Forms, guides, and advice for educational outreach programs, working with minors and volunteers, and other considerations.
- Connections for teaching and lecturing opportunities in the local community.
- Educational outreach office support for development and implementation of hands-on demonstrations and lessons designed for PreK-12 students.
- Opportunities to host high school students in labs for summer research.
- Consultation on development and implementation of broader impacts components of grant applications.
- Consultations and resources on Broader Impacts and educational components of research proposals.
