Registration is now open for CRLT's fall seminar series on teaching and learning. These programs offer U-M instructors opportunities to gain new perspectives on teaching at Michigan, share ideas across disciplines, and improve teaching skills. 

Participants collaborating in a workshop activityThis semester, our offerings include workshops for both faculty and graduate students on key skills like leading discussions and writing exams. To help U-M instructors make a smooth transition to using the Canvas learning management system, we are also offering sessions on teaching with Canvas for both faculty and GSIs. And as always, our seminar series features sessions on topics related to diversity and inclusive teaching. This fall, these include a faculty panel entitled "How Do We Teach About Privilege?"; a four-session seminar for graduate students and postdocs on Diversity and Inclusive Teaching (co-facilitated by CRLT and IGR); and a workshop exploring the intersection of technology and accessibility. Full details about these programs and more can be found on our Upcoming Events list.

How do our interactions with and through computers shape our experiences of teaching and learning? What new kinds of student work become possible with digital tools and environments that allow online collaboration, integration of text and video, or access to huge amounts of data? How might those tools reinforce or subvert social dynamics in and beyond the classroom?

GTC+ logoGraduate student participants in the new GTC+ certificate program are finding a place to explore such questions about the role of digital media in their college teaching. Developed collaboratively by CRLT, the Institute for the Humanities, and Rackham Graduate School, the certificate both structures and documents professional development in teaching with digital media for students already pursuing the Rackham-CRLT Graduate Teacher Certificate.

The GTC+ program includes an online introductory workshop, opportunities to learn about digital pedagogies, and a consultation about course and assignment design. An electronic portfolio provides a space to gather and reflect upon those components. And a networking requirement facilitates interaction with other instructors about teaching with digital media.
