CTE Drop-In: Introducing Blend by Design

Friday, September 18th
11:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.

In this informal drop-in session, we will introduce the Blend by Design program that is available to all faculty and staff.   We encourage colleagues to share how they have used the program in their course designs and how they have used the program concepts in their teaching this semester.   Feel free to just stop by and chat with us too!  This event will be the first of regularly scheduled drop-in sessions for the fall semester.

Can you hear me now? Adapting to wearing a mask in the classroom 

Thursday, September 24th
1:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m.

Fall 2020 has brought a lot of changes. Though a vital safety measure, masks affect our day-to-day communication. Join us for a workshop exploring how we can adapt to wearing a face covering while teaching in the physical classroom, as well as how we can teach our students to give classroom presentations while wearing a face covering.

CTE Book Group: Bandwidth Recovery

Reschedule for Fall 2020 – date coming soon.
Center for Teaching Excellence, Feinstein 304

This semester, the CTE will host a book group for faculty and staff members to read the book together and discuss how to incorporate these strategies and interventions with our students. Maureen Outlaw, Associate Professor of Sociology, will facilitate these discussions.

Cia Versheldon’s book Bandwidth Recovery argues that students’ cognitive capacity (bandwidth) is often diminished by the negative effects of scarcity (economic, safety, belonging, etc.) and provides evidence-based strategies and interventions you can incorporate in and out of the classroom to help students recover some cognitive bandwidth and be more successful in the classroom.
