Colloquium on Learning and Teaching

This semester-long course is designed to provide faculty members with an opportunity to explore effective teaching theory and practices. The colloquium has two major components. First, colloquium participants attend a course twice a week throughout the semester. During their time together participants discuss teaching practices that promote principles contained in the Framework for Learning and Teaching and role play these practices. Secondly colloquium participants participate in two forms of classroom observations. CLT members observe colloquium participants in their classroom and provided feedback. In addition, colloquium participants make visits of other faculty.

Due to space limitations the Colloquium on Learning and Teaching is typically limited to second-year faculty members. However, as vacancies come available other faculty members may participate. Faculty members who participate must obtain a three-credit release from their teaching load during the same semester in which they participate. Please contact us if you wish to participate or have other questions.
