Get to know your new colleagues, explore the differences between a teaching-centered and a learning-centered approach to instruction, and learn more about how the science of learning can be applied in a variety of teaching environments.
Outcomes for faculty:
-identify others on campus who are excited about teaching and learning and who come from a diversity of career stages, roles, and disciplines
-explain how one’s own teaching fits on the spectrum from a teaching-centered to a learning-centered approach
-describe how the science of learning can be applied to practical strategies in one’s own teaching environments
This program will provide new and pre-tenure faculty with the opportunity to learn about timely and practical approaches for enhancing their teaching, while building their campus-wide network in an informal setting. Facilitated discussions on a range of topics in teaching and learning will combine evidence-based research with first-hand experience from participants and CTL staff.
Participants in this program will:
-apply evidence-based strategies for teaching to their own courses and instructional contexts
-develop a network of faculty, staff, and educational support professionals across campus
-convert Queen’s University’s institutional priorities for teaching and learning into manageable components of their own teaching practice
