TEC Teaching Tips Social and Match-making for Linked Courses
Come join us on Wednesday, November 1st to meet and converse with colleagues from across campus. Bring a teaching tip to share (optional). Also, keep your thoughts open to find other faculty with related teaching areas or topics who might fit with you as part of a linked set of courses.
Some good reasons to consider teaching
linked courses include:
1. Helping first-year students transition to university life by giving them a network of peers.
2. Helping students see the connections between different types of knowledge.
3. Giving faculty members an excuse to work with colleagues from other disciplines to gain new insights into their teaching and research interests.
Starting the planning now will allow plenty of time to work out details before departments submit their schedules for Fall 2007. More about linked courses.
There will be refreshments and door prizes. There will be special
prize drawings for those who bring a teaching tip. So, mark your
calendar: Nov. 1 from 3:30 - 4:30 (come and go) in the Wyatt Room of
the Steen Library.
