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.
