The William G. Jackson Center for Teaching and Learning holds events and workshops to support Michigan Tech in the continuous improvement of teaching and learning at all instructional levels.
Luncheons and Coffee Chat Events
During the fall and spring semesters, the CTL invites instructors to luncheon and coffee chat events. Lunch and Learn events feature presentations from CTL and other campus experts. Coffee provide instructors (faculty, postdocs, TAs, etc.) and staff with opportunities to discuss contemporary issues of interest. These events provide an opportunity to network with faculty from other departments, learn new instructional strategies and tools, and become aware of instructional policy changes. Please contact us with ideas and suggestions for future events.
Technical and Pedagogical Workshops
Technical workshops: The CTL offers workshops to support instructors in the use of technologies to support learner-centered instruction. Workshops often focus on the use of the Canvas learning management system, the Huskycast-Panopto video platform, iClicker student response software, and other EdTech tools that support instruction. Technical workshops are typically 45-minute sessions with time afterwards for questions.
Pedagogical workshops: Throughout the academic year, the CTL offers pedagogical workshops and/or events that inform faculty on emerging best practices in the classroom along with building an awareness about how students learn. The pedagogical focus encompasses approaches and methods that create active and engaging courses that foster student learning.
