Each year, the Centre for Leadership in Learning co-ordinates several seminars and workshops on teaching and learning topics. These well- attended events often feature award winning guest speakers. Past topics include:
- engaging students e.g.Confessions of a Converted Lecturer - Dr. Eric Mazur
- encouraging civility in the classroom
- educational research designs
In addition to events for instructors, we offer workshops and seminars targeted to teaching assistants on teaching and professional development topics. Some of these seminars are single one-hour events while others take place over several weeks. Past sessions have focused on a variety of issues such as:
- leading effective discussions
- designing effective lectures
- motivating students
- personal efficiencies
- marking essays and lab reports
- writing learning objectives
- applying or academic and non-academic jobs
CLL also works with individual departments and schools across campus to organize discipline-specific teaching events. These sessions, which can take a variety of forms, are tailored to the interests of your department and provide an opportunity for you and your colleagues to come together and discuss issues of immediate relevance to your teaching.
