"I wish there was a way that I could learn enough about (X) to use it in my own course, and have someone there to help me when I need it...I get good ideas from workshops, but when I walk out the door I have so many other things competing for my attention that when I finally get time for planning, I've forgotten the details of my ideas!"

If you have ever had this thought, you are not alone!

Intro & GO sessions give you a brief 20-minute introduction to a teaching technique, tool or strategy - just enough information to get you started, and then - GO! The remaining 100 minutes of the session are for you to integrate that particular technique, tool or strategy into your course, with the topic specialist(s) right there to answer questions, give suggestions, provide additional information, and help you in your planning. Ideas, time, and resources are all lined up so you can be inspired and productive.

What the #?$! is SoTL?: A lunchtime session on the lived experience of enhancing our teaching and learning

Sharing Teaching Practices
11:45 AM to 1:15 PM

Murray Bldg Collaborative Learning Lab

The scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL) is about researching and reflecting on teaching and learning in our own disciplines and disseminating the results of our efforts. SoTL is inherently about sharing our work in teaching and learning, whether through presentation or publication. In this session, faculty members will briefly talk about their SoTL work, then all of us—whether new-to-SoTL, intrigued, or experienced—can work with these faculty members in informal groups to explore ways that we might incorporate SoTL in our own practices.

Universal Instructional Design (UID) provides a foundation on which to build courses and educational resources that are functional for as many students as possible, regardless of their individual needs.
