IDS Programs

IDS programs include the presentation of campus-wide Workshops, a series of workshop on teaching and learning specifically designed for Early Career Faculty, Course Design for Sustainability, the Department Chair Series.

 

Early Career Faculty Series on Teaching and Learning

This workshop series is designed to help faculty, adjuncts, and TAs who are the "instructors of record" for their courses become more confident and reflective teachers by expanding their knowledge and skills regarding teaching and learning. The facilitators will model a variety of active learning strategies and we will be discussing and reflecting upon educational theory and practice. By combining action and analysis, participants have a chance to explore and develop teaching skills that promote learning within a diverse student body across a variety of settings. Throughout this process, we will discuss the ways in which teaching choices grow out of beliefs and experiences (culturally and individually held) and how those choices influence students' learning.
