Upcoming Event

Idea Exchange on Learner-Centered Course Design scheduled for Friday, December 3 at 11 am. Register today!

Come join us as we learn about this approach to teaching and discuss how to apply it to our classes in order to encourage a climate of student success: "The goal of learner-centered teaching is the development of students as autonomous, self-directed, and self-regulated learners." (Weimer, 2013, p. 10).  

Would you like to contribute your tips and tricks to this Idea Exchange? Faculty are invited to present about a strategy or resource related to learner-centered teaching at this event. Please contact [email protected] if you would like to be one of the presenters.

Attendees will earn 5 points and presenters will earn 7 points toward their CTE Knights Certificates!

HyFlex Training

In partnership with the Learning Design Center and IT, CTE is pleased to offer an hour-long, hands-on workshop covering use of the HyFlex classroom technology as well as teaching tips for managing a HyFlex classroom.  The workshop will be repeated weekly.

This training will help you use your HyFlex-equipped classrooms effectively. HyFlex classrooms feature articulating webcams and special microphones that allow students to participate from their homes. We hope you will be able to join us to learn more about these HyFlex options.

The hands-on workshops will run Friday mornings through November 19 in Knight 6010. Workshops take about an hour. See dates, times, and register here.
