Unpack the mechanisms that give rise to inequity in higher education, examine our own participation in those mechanisms, and generate alternative ways of teaching that challenge those mechanisms.
For experienced TAs: Continue your development as an instructor with an in-depth exploration of inclusive teaching practices and opportunities to apply them in your own classroom.
This four-week series will prepare you to develop a backwards designed teaching plan, and to start designing your teaching-as-research project during the Delta internship. Required preparation for the internship; open to all who have taken or are taking a Delta or CIRTL course.
Develop foundational knowledge of a evidence-based pedagogical practices, explore how excellence and diversity are intertwined, and practice new teaching approaches in a supportive environment.
Explore strategies to become a more effective, culturally responsive mentor, and discuss mentoring challenges as they arise.
The Delta Program will offer local Learning Community to support the online Introduction Evidenced-Based STEM Teaching course.
Explore active learning, formative, summative, and hypothesis-driven assessment, and responsiveness to diversity. Participants will examine a variety of teaching practices and principles and will participate in peer-evaluated micro-teaching exercise.
Teach better and more efficiently by harnessing learning technologies in your practice. We’ll explore how to effectively use tools such as videos, interactive media, screencasting, games and simulations, online discussions, and, of course, Canvas.
Using the lens of international experience, this course models 'flipped classroom' and 'blended learning' approaches and advances your skills in leveraging the diversity of your students for the learning of all.
