In this 2-day learning series, participants will come together to engage in dialogue, discussion and customized planning to work toward reducing barriers to teaching and learning. There are many possible barriers that we as faculty face, and many more that our students may face. This session is meant to delve into those possible barriers (i.e., teaching a diverse group of students, finding low-cost but effective resources, keeping students motivated and engaged, making technology accessible, etc.).
2019 VIU Team-Based Learning Course (Re-)Design Program
Energize Student Participation and Improve Attendance with Team-Based Learning
Workshop: August 14-16, for Fall 2019 Implementation
This program is an opportunity for faculty members to review, enhance and (re)construct one of their courses. Working alongside their peers, faulty members engage in activities that highlight essential course design principles and then apply those ideas to an upcoming course. This course redesign program is focused on meaningful assessment and evaluation and pays close attention to designing summative assessment tools that align with course learning outcomes.
