CIE to offer workshops on college teaching

Purdue instructors can enhance their teaching skills, exchange ideas with colleagues and get practical hints on their craft in a workshop series offered by the Center for Instructional Excellence.

Beginning Tuesday (Jan. 15), workshops will be offered on the basics of teaching at Purdue. Topics include how to:

* Engage students.

* Get students to come to class prepared.

* Write a course syllabus.

* Establish course policies that work.

* Give effective lectures.

* Write various kinds of tests.

Instructors can register for a single workshop or for the series of 10. Faculty, staff and graduate students who are currently teaching -- or those who plan to teach in the future -- are welcome to attend.
