Register Now for CRLT Fall Workshops

Registration is now open for CRLT's fall series of workshops on teaching and learning. These programs offer U-M faculty, graduate students, and postdocs opportunities to gain new perspectives on teaching at Michigan, share ideas across disciplines, and improve their teaching skills. This semester, we're offering a wide range of sessions including:

  • Multi-part series for faculty including a faculty learning community about blended course design, supporting instructors who wish to integrate online learning activities with traditional face-to-face instruction, and a community of practice for instructors using gameful learning practices who wish to connect with colleagues from multiple units who are including gameful elements in their teaching.
  • Multiple workshops for GSIs and faculty on inclusive teaching topics, including workshops focused on maximizing accessibility, responding to microaggressions, and teaching for retention in STEM fields. 
  • Engineering focused workshops sponsored by CRLT in Engineering covering topics from motivating students to incorporating active learning techniques.
  • Sessions on core teaching skills, such as writing and grading exams and teaching with technology.

Full details about these programs--and many more--can be found on our Upcoming Events list.

Participants report that the programs have helped them become more confident teachers and prepared them well for a competitive academic job search.
