This semester-long course is designed to provide faculty members with an opportunity to explore and apply effective teaching theory and practices. The colloquium has two major components.

First, colloquium participants attend a course and complete readings 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 share applications of those principles.  

Second, 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 to other participants' classrooms. At the conclusion of the colloquium, participants will share course design improvements they have or plan to implement in their courses.

Participants meet weekly through the semester on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3 pm-4:30 pm. If you are interested in participating in colloquium please contact your dean.
