The Center for Teaching and Learning is hosting a two-day Teaching and Learning Institute. The institute, now on its second day, is engaging over a dozen Brandeis faculty and two international faculty on how to:

  • Foster more student learning with a variety of in-class and out-of-class methods.
  • Incorporate issues of diversity into your courses and create inclusive classrooms.
  • Use a powerful design method to revise and strengthen courses and assignments.

This workshop is intended for both early-career and well-established faculty – and past institutes have included participants from across the University sharing their knowledge of learning and teaching with their colleagues. As one participant wrote, “All (or most) faculty should participate in sessions like this, especially since many faculty members have never been trained in teaching methods.” The institute runs for two full days; participants attend both days and receive books and readings to help them continue to revise their teaching. The ideas you gain from the two-day Institute in May will likely save you much more than two days next year.
