CTL Workshops for the week of September 17

The Center for Teaching and Learning will present three workshops the week of September 17. Each workshop will be held in Library 376 from 12-12:45.

Tuesday, September 18-Student Assessment Tools: One way to support student learning is to provide students with frequent, low-stakes opportunities to recall information and course content (also known as retrieval practice). In this workshop, you will use online student response systems to create in-class assessments to provide students with opportunities for recall of course content.

Wednesday, September 19-Introduction to Community-Based Learning (CBL): Community-based Learning, also known as service-learning, can be a transformative, high-impact learning experience and can contribute to improved community-campus relationships. In this workshop, you will learn basic principles of community-based learning course design. In this workshop, you will identify potential community-based learning opportunities for one of your courses and begin redesigning a course to incorporate CBL. Subsequent workshops will focus on specific elements of community-based learning such as aligning community-based learning experiences with learning outcomes, applying best practices for student reflection, and developing mutually beneficial partnerships with community organizations. This workshop will be repeated on Tuesday, September 25. You can register for the Introduction to Community-Based Learning workshop at

Thursday, September 20-Introduction to Universal Design for Learning (UDL): Universal Design for Learning incorporates a variety of teaching and assessment strategies that are designed to be inclusive of all learners. It incorporates principles of accessibility, but also incorporates practices that improve learning for every student. In this workshop, you will learn the basic principles of UDL and begin applying those principles by revising at least one component of course content.
