  • Identify ways to enhance student engagement in their classes
  • Receive feedback from course facilitators and participants
  • Benefit from in-depth conversations with fellow colleagues
  • Arrange for individual consultation throughout the year with facilitators

Each of the sessions will include a presentation and learning activities that reflect a particular theme. Specific themes for the program will include:

  • Planning effective instruction
  • Exploring teaching methodologies
  • Building effective assessment practices
  • Managing the dynamics of both small and large classes
