9:30–11:00 am
Gordon Center for Integrative Science, Room 500A

929 E. 57th St.


Please note that although you will only register for the March 3 session from 9:30 - 11 a.m., this is a two-part series that continues on March 10 from 9:30 - 11 a.m.
This workshop will begin with a discussion of how a student's prior knowledge influences learning. Session leaders will then introduce a framework to guide your course design and begin drafting learning objectives. The workshop will conclude by examining how to choose the teaching methods that will prepare students to meet your learning objectives and are appropriate for your particular class.
Participants may bring drafts of a syllabus, learning objectives, assessments, and/or ideas for teaching methods to the March 10 meeting, although this isn’t required. Session leaders can provide feedback on any drafts during the workshop. The session leaders will also elaborate on teaching methods, answer lingering questions, and discuss teaching resources at UChicago such as, Canvas, accommodations, etc.
