Storrs Campus
ROWE 319

Participate in a series of informal teaching talks during January and the spring semester You are invited to participate in a series of informal teaching talks throughout 2017. These are opportunities for participants to comfortably share teaching concerns and discuss techniques and strategies with colleagues, experts, and CETL staff. All sessions will take place in Rowe 319. All UConn instructors —graduate students, TAs, and APIRs, as well as adjunct, tenure-track and tenured faculty—are encouraged to attend.

At this session, participants will discuss issues like

• Discerning between lower-, middle-, and higher-order thinking skills

• Expressing what we hope students will learn from our course

• Articulating learning outcomes in measurable terms

• Checking that activities and assessments align with learning outcomes

• Envisioning how to revise or “flip” the course to achieve goals

Please bring a detailed syllabus to work on at the session.

Please email Stacey Valliere at or (860-486-2686) to register, and contact Suzanne LaFleur if you have questions or would like more information.
