This seminar series is offered by the ECTL through a generous endowment from the John P. Ellbogen Foundation. It is designed to provide professional development opportunities related to teaching and learning for Graduate Assistants with teaching responsibilities.All graduate students are welcome and encouraged to attend any of our sessions. Registration is required for each seminar. Light meals are provided at all sessions unless otherwise noted.
Adapted from the book of the same name, this seminar draws on research and practical experience to identify a set of key principles and strategies that enhance student learning.
From moments after birth, people develop within social relationships—we come to the world biologically ready to engage with other people, and the emotions we feel in social contexts shape how we feel about ourselves and how we learn. Based on recent research (developmental, cognitive and neuroscientific), Mary Helen Immordino-Yang will engage the audience in a discussion about how learning happens and how teachers can support it.
In this session, we will discuss ways in which you can establish your authority as a teacher, while fostering a warm, inclusive atmosphere.
In this session we will address how to promote student accountability in a number of ways: we will discuss the use of low-grade formative assessment, how to “flip” the classroom to encourage students to be prepared, and how to develop students’ self-evaluative and “learning-to-learn” skills.
This semester UW librarians are offering four workshops to familiarize anyone undertaking a research project with time saving tools available through the library. For more information click here.
