CTL to Host Active Course Design Institute, December 17-19

gudemug.pngPrepare for next semester by learning more about active learning teaching techniques at the CTL's Active Course Design Institute from Wednesday December 17 through Friday December 19.  The Institute will take place NMU from 9-4 daily, with seminars in the morning and  working sessions in the afternoon.

Registration is now open for two participation options:

  • À la carte.  Each morning will feature content seminars from 9:00 am – 12:00 pm, with a bonus session on Friday at 1:00 pm. These sessions will be open to all interested faculty.  Come to as many as you’d like.  You’ll receive a certificate for each workshop attended.

  • Full Institute.  If you’d like to get a jump start on designing or redesigning a course to incorporate active learning, attend all of the morning seminars, AND stick around for working sessions from 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm (1:45 pm – 4:00 pm on Friday). Lunch will be provided. The afternoon sessions are designed for you to work on a specific course, with CTL staff available to provide assistance. Participants in the full institute will receive lunch each day and a letter recognizing their completion of this faculty development program.  More importantly, upon completion of the institute, you’ll have a new course ready (or well on its way to ready) to roll out next semester!

Review the program, then register!  Please contact the CTL if you have any questions.

IDT/CTL Website

Instructional Design and Technology (IDT) and the Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) have undergone several changes in the last year. The CTL was launched to enhance the services previously offered through the CITE. Complementing the physical improvements, we are redesigning our web presence (which currently includes both http://idt.nmu.edu and http://www.nmu.edu/ctl) into a single, integrated site. As we plan our new website, we would like your input on how the site can be most useful to you. Please use this link to provide your input

Faculty Focus Video Series

Faculty utilize many different techniques to engage students in the classroom.  In this video series we will interview instructors employing creative or innovative teaching methods in the classroom. In addition to the interview, we will have a glimpse into the classroom to see the interaction between students as well as the instructor. Take a look at our first video in the series as we follow Adonna Rometo in "Digestion in Action: Active Learning in a Physiology Lecture."
