Effective, adjective: Successful in producing a desired or intended result. Being an effective teacher means asking how your student learning and experiences met the teaching goals, which starts with measurable, student-centered learning outcomes. These are often challenging to write, yet should be the starting point of any teaching. Participants will need to bring learning outcomes related to teaching they are currently or will soon be doing. Learning outcomes are part of the teaching-as-research process, and this workshop is highly recommended for those considering a Delta internship.
Learning outcome: Create realistic well-defined, achievable, measurable and student-centered learning goals for any teaching experience.
