TLTT "The seminar was the best and most productive time I've ever spent with academic colleagues discussing teaching and pedagogy. I suggest to any faculty who haven't taken this seminar, that it is the best investment you can make in your own teaching, regardless of how much or how little you have taught before."
- James Luke, Economics

This course provides an opportunity to...

  • Connect with faculty from across disciplines to share, explore, and reflect upon current teaching and learning practices.
  • Experience various teaching and learning strategies from a student's perspective.
  • Apply newly learned techniques with the support of colleagues.

A collaborative approach is used to model various teaching and learning strategies and create a faculty learning community. Whether you are new to teaching, or have taught for a long time, you won't want to miss this unique experience!

"Initially, I was hesitant to take the seminar, afraid it might be too theoretical without any direct application ... But from the very first session, you set me straight! In every session I learned something that I will use to be a better (more effective) teacher."
- Mobashera Hallam, Developmental Math
