This course runs over four days- August 20, 21, 24, & 25 (from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM each day).  Attendance at all four days is required. 

Please note: on the registration site, you will select only "August 20" for registration, but the course runs for four consecutive days.

The GMCTE is offering a short professional development program to support faculty, sessional lecturers, and graduate student teachers.  This four-day (24 hours total) workshop is recognized internationally as the Instructional Skills Workshop (http://iswnetwork.ca). Your participation in the interactive workshop will facilitate:

  • familiarization with essential teaching theory and practices
  • development of feedback skills
  • approaches to writing learning objectives and lesson plans
  • skills and confidence in implementing the aforementioned by teaching three mini-lessons, and receiving invaluable feedback  from peers and the facilitators
  • skills for critical self-reflection
  • establishing supportive relationships with peers

We encourage you to take advantage of this practical opportunity, and to register as soon as possible: spaces are limited.

Please Note: On the registration site, you will select only "August 20" for registration, but the course runs for four consecutive days.

The Teaching Portfolio: Reflecting On Your Teaching Practice

Fall Workshop event with Wenona Partridge & Kim West

MURRAY G3

The aim of this short course is to bring together a community of teachers (including graduate students, faculty, sessional lecturers, advisors, and staff) who are interested in developing and discussing a reflective teaching or advising practice. During the course, teachers will reflect on their approach and philosophy and the ways in which their beliefs, values, and goals affect their pedagogical decisions in the classroom. They will have opportunities to engage in reflection, discuss their teaching goals, methods, and philosophy with their peers, observe one another’s teaching, write a teaching philosophy statement and develop a reflective  teaching portfolio , intended to foster reflection on teaching experiences to improve learning. For tenure track faculty, reflecting on one’s teaching practice provides a solid foundation on which to build a case file, similarly for sessionals, graduate students, staff, and advisors, reflecting on your teaching or advising practice will help rejuvenate your practice and prepare you well when applying for academic, staff, or teaching positions.

This short course will be offered on Wednesday afternoons, 1:30 - 4 pm, on the following dates:

  • September 30
  • October 14
  • October 28
  • November 18

Preparing & Personalizing Your Course Syllabus

Fall Workshop event with Heather Ross & Kim West
1:00 PM to 3:00 PM

MURRAY 50.12

Your course syllabi can be very important to the students in your classes, providing them with information on assignments, quizzes and exams, your office hours and other valuable information about the class. But, your syllabus can also show students about who you are as a person and an instructor through its format and tone.

The University of Saskatchewan Academic Courses Policy details the requirements of what should be included in every syllabus.  This session will look at creating a course syllabus with this policy in mind.
