CITLA Spring Symposium 2016

Tuesday, May 24, 2016, Room 1040, Warwick Campus, 12:00 - 3:00 p.m.        

 Intentional Pedagogy: Setting Ourselves up for Success

 Join Laurie L. Grupp Ph.D., as she presents a workshop on course design. ​Faculty members know that the decisions we make prior to the start of a course have implications for student engagement and learning throughout the semester. As we give considerable thought to learning objectives, readings, and assignments, we are simultaneously creating a framework for our own teaching and student learning. In this interactive workshop, we will begin with background on effective course design followed by consideration of intentional pedagogy, an approach that encourages us to be more mindful of the types of student engagement that we promote. We will learn how to incorporate active learning techniques that motivate students to engage with course content, the instructor, and each other.

Dr. Grupp is the Director of the Center for Teaching Excellence and Associate Professor of Elementary/Special Education​ at Providence College.

  NEW Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL)

Faculty Learning Community Forming

Do you have questions about your teaching and student learning that you’d like to turn into research questions and hypotheses that can be answered empirically? 

Would you like to work with a group of like-minded faculty who are also researching meaningful questions about their teaching and their students’ learning? 

Members of the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning faculty learning community will meet over the course of the spring 2016 semester, read articles on SoTL, attend at least 2 meetings, and participate in a workshop given by Dr. Michele DiPietro called “Moving your SoTL Project Forward”. The workshop will take place on Tuesday, June 7, 2016 from 8:30-4:00 on the URI Alton Jones Campus. In addition to participating in the meetings listed, faculty members will design a SoTL project, carry out the research, and publish the findings in a journal and/or present them at a conference.

To join this Faculty Learning Community, please click here and print the application.  Please forward the completed application to Michele Quaedvlieg, Knight Campus Library by March 7, 2016.  If you have any questions please contact Jeanne Mullaney at 825-2478.
